Multidisciplinary health care teams, in 42 CF clinics across Canada, offer outpatient specialized services to children, adolescents and adults with CF. Institutions hosting a CF clinic provide a wide array of health and psycho-social services.
By awarding clinic and transplant centre incentive grants - $2.1 million in 2011-2012 - Cystic Fibrosis Canada enhances clinical and transplant care. This supplementary funding strengthens existing programs and helps ensure a consistently high standard of service for all Canadians who have cystic fibrosis.
