The Newly Diagnosed Program has been developed to offer support for parents and extended family members following the diagnosis of CF.
A support pack will be presented to the family at PMH on behalf of CFWA containing information about CF and the services provided by CFWA. The packs include:
Having a newborn diagnosed with CF can raise some emotional issues for families. CFWA can provide general support, counselling and social work support.
Contact email@example.com or phone 08 6457 7348 for more information.
Our community nurse can offer support in the early weeks by meeting with you in the comfort of your home to answer questions, offer support information and individual care advice given at diagnosis. The nurse can assist in establishing a routine in consultation with the PMH CF clinic.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 08 6457 7346 for more information.
In home and phone support is available.
CFWA also have a variety of equipment available for loan such as nebulisers.
