CF Smart


School Support

We respond to referrals from schools requesting assistance with cystic fibrosis related issues. We use the CFSmart program to inform teachers who are preparing for the first time to have a child with cystic fibrosis in their class.  If you would like us to visit your school please email with your schools preferred dates and times and we will aim to accommodate your request.

Teachers are encouraged to complete the e-learning modules. Each module is worth one professional development point, is free to undertake and takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. The modules and more information on CFSmart can be found here
