Clinical Nutrition Course – practical interventions to optimise nutrition. A basic/revision course for 2022
Wednesday 8 June Half day

With this course, we aim to provide practical information for clinical application to maximise nutrition outcomes. We will signpost towards the most recent data/guidelines that underpin the above.
This course is meant for those new to CF or those who work directly with CF patients wishing to revisit the fundamental principles.
Physiotherapy Short Course – The upper airway: Practical assessment and therapy – From research to daily work practice

This course is intended for physiotherapists, physical or respiratory therapists who require training in the assessment and interpretation of literature and the upper airways. The course will help build on existing knowledge as well as how research results can be translated into daily working practice recommendations.
The course will include both theory and practical sessions.
Discussing sex and intimacy with patients with CF is not ‚opening a box of pandora‘, but ‚re-opening a box of pleasure‘!
Tuesday 7 June – All day
09:00 – 17:00
Registration 150 € - Low and Middle Income Countries € 90
Based on the idea that 'nothing is quite so practical as a good theory‘ (Lewin), this interactive (!) workshop aims to introduce a generic conceptual framework that: a) is helpful to determine how CF and sexuality are related, and b) provides leads and clues you can use in your clinical practice. Moreover, you will get acquainted with (new) vocabulary and ideas to discuss sexual issues, problems and worries. Finally, you will be inspired to think about your personal responsibility and capabilities to discuss sexuality and intimacy with the people you care for. If time allows, we will also play a ‚game of goose‘ that is helpful to see how CF impacts relational and sexual development in the context of a family.
In sum, this workshop is what you need to see how easy it is to discuss sexuality in your daily practice.
