CFRI offers a growing wealth of resources for the cystic fibrosis community.
Medications: In-Depth Information
We are pleased to bring you ePOCRATES® MedSearch for instant access to information about medications. This web site is provided to the CF community as a supplementary resource only. Nothing can substitute for the expertise of healthcare professionals. Always consult with your health care team regarding which medications are best for your unique situation.
Type the name of a medication in the window provided above, and you will access the ePOCRATES® website. Consult your primary health care provider if you have questions or concerns about any medical issues or conditions. Health information found at CFRI, including search engine resources, is not a prescription for your personal medical conditions or needs.
Issues of our newsletter, CFRI Community, can be downloaded at any time. They offer information about CF research, educational events and notes of interest to those in the CF community. Articles also discuss transitions in the lives of those with CF.
The Importance of Education
I have been meaning to e-mail you since Claire started Kindergarten to let you know how helpful the CFRI booklet "Cystic Fibrosis in the Classroom" was for us. I gave a copy to her teacher, the school principal, the school nurse, and the district nurse to read before we met to set up her 504 plan. I also used a folder I received from the last CFRI conference by Lisa Yourman on what to put in a 504 plan. It was a great help to have the resources to guide me through the process. Setting up her 504 plan went without a hitch! Claire's teacher, school administrators, and nurses were extraordinarily kind and have been willing to help us in any possible way. Thanks so much for all the great work you do at CFRI. Having resources like this makes such a tremendous difference, and I really appreciate all you do.Lou Ann Alexander
