Collaborating in an advisory capacity to the Management Group of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, the Cystic Fibrosis Canada Nursing Advisory Group (CFCNAG) is a partner that recognizes the need to ensure a high standard of nursing practice, education, and research.

Comprised of Nurse Coordinators from all cystic fibrosis (CF) clinics in the country, CFCNAG’s mandate includes providing nursing and healthcare advice to Cystic Fibrosis Canada; presenting a national nursing perspective on CF-related issues; sharing best practices and knowledge exchange; advocating for CF patients; and providing leadership in establishing the highest standards of nursing care in cystic fibrosis.

CFCNAG was established in October 2012 to act as a valued source of credible and professional advice to the Management Group of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, and to the many CF patients across the country and their families.
