An updated Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (U.S.A.) Infection Prevention and Control Guideline for people with CF, their families and health care professionals was published in the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America’s Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology journal in July 2014. The updated guidelines have been endorsed by the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) and Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Healthcare Advisory Council.
In response to these guidelines, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has developed an infection control policy for Cystic Fibrosis Canada hosted/sponsored meetings. Please note that this policy applies to all individuals with CF, including those who have undergone lung or liver transplant. Read more about the policy here.
