About The Program

Welcome to the Indiana University School of Medicine second Cystic Fibrosis Foundation sponsored course. 

During the last year, Indiana University School of Medicine Division of Continuing Medical Education (IUSM CME) has earned Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional CME from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANNCC). We are excited to be able to offer CME credits for many members of the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) interprofessional team.  

Cystic Fibrosis Diagnosis and Management- Birth through the Pre-School Years begins with a module detailing the team-based management needed during the first several clinic visits of an infant diagnosed with CF through newborn screening. This module is a direct result of suggestions received from Course One. The next three modules focus on important aspects of care of the child in infancy and preschool and are tightly linked to the Clinical Practice Guidelines From the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for Preschoolers With Cystic Fibrosis. Once again, we complete the course with module five focusing on an advanced topic- CFTR modulators in this young age group. 

Please note that, although the modules are detailed in content they are not intended to be a comprehensive review of the topic

CME and ABP MOC Part 2 credit will be provided to those that finish the activity and complete a brief evaluation at the end. 

Course Two: Cystic Fibrosis Diagnosis and Management- Birth through the Pre-School Years

Modules for this course include:

Module One: Diagnosis and Initial Management
Module Two: Clinical Monitoring- Radiology and Pulmonary Function Testing
Module Three: Pulmonary Exacerbations- Diagnosis and Screening
Module Four: Psychological and Social Support- The Priorities 
Module Five: Advanced Topics- CFTR Modulators

Please keep in mind:

  • 3.00 CME credits will be awarded for this course (although it may take anywhere between 120 to 180 minutes to complete depending on the learner’s expertise.) 
  • CME will be awarded for Nursing, Pharmacy, Physician and Social Work. All other professions will be awarded 3.0 Non-Physician Attendance hours that may be applied towards continuing medical education. Please check with your accreditation governing body for details.

  • In order to earn your course certificate and CME credit, you must complete a pre- and post-quiz for each module as well as a quick survey at the end.
