Cystic Fibrosis organisations in Australia provide support and services to people with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and their carers and families. This is complemented by a commitment to research and a quality improvement program focussing on improved clinical care for people with CF. Each State and Territory (except Northern Territory) has a Cystic Fibrosis organisation devoted to providing a range of support services. These include counselling, information workshops and seminars, case management, comprehensive home care services and professional development for allied health personnel, financial support to take part in physical activities, information on cystic fibrosis for key milestones in a persons development such as, for newly diagnosed parents, for teenagers transitioning from a children's hospital to an adult hospital and issues people face as an adult CF.
