Our Program

The Cystic Fibrosis (CF) program provides care and support to children and youth with CF and their families. Our dedicated team of health care professionals includes physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers, dietitians, genetics counsellors, pulmonary function technicians and pharmacists.

Children who have or are suspected of having cystic fibrosis, are referred to our program by a physician. Newborns are referred by the Ontario Newborn Screening Program. The CF program provides a range of services with an emphasis on early diagnosis and intervention to prevent disease complications.

The program also provides an outreach clinic in Sault Ste. Marie. Health care professionals from Children's Hospital travel to this clinic three times per year to provide care to children with CF.
