Can exercise replace chest physiotherapy for people with cystic fibrosis? Partnering with consumers to address a research priority

People with cystic fibrosis (CF) have indicated that finding out if exercise can replace daily physiotherapy (airway clearance) is an area of research priority for them. However, the best way to test whether exercise can replace airway clearance is not clear. 

We are running a study to understand the thoughts and experiences of people with CF

of all ages, their carers and healthcare professionals about things like: What is important to consider in designing a research trial to test if exercise can replace airway clearance? Who would be the right people to take part in such a study? How long should such a study run for? What would be important outcomes to measure?

We are looking for children (aged 10 years+) and adults with CF, carers of people with CF and healthcare professionals working with people with CF to join a virtual discussion group. You’ll join 8-12 other people for up to 2 hours in a video chat (Zoom). The virtual discussion groups will take place in April and May 2022.
