Mandate

The St. Paul’s Hospital Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program is committed to improving the quality of life and health outcomes of individuals living with CF.

In order to achieve this goal, we have a research mandate to be involved in clinical studies that:

1) improve our understanding of CF lung disease and other CF-related complications;
2) evaluate new investigational CF drugs;
3) improve the quality of CF care delivery.

By participating in research studies offered through our clinic, you are making a valuable contribution to advancing the care of CF patients locally and around the world. Participation in research is completely voluntary and the clinical care you receive will never be affected by your decision to participate or not.

Our CF clinical research coordinators can provide you with information on all of our active research studies when you visit the clinic. If you would like more information on these studies please follow the “studies” link on our website and/or contact one of our CF research coordinators:
