Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to inform you that, in collaboration with the CF Foundation, we will be developing ENT (otolaryngology) guidelines for individuals with CF. To help inform the scope of these guidelines, we kindly request that you complete the survey below:


This survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete, and the information gathered will be used to inform the scope of the ENT guidelines. It asks about your experience with and practice patterns around ENT referrals and treatment. You may choose not to answer any or all questions. The survey will be distributed to members of the CF care team, individuals with CF and their family members, as well as ENTs. If you work with an ENT we encourage you to share this survey with them. We are not collecting any identifying information. The survey will close on Friday, November 8, 2018.

Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions and/or feedback about the survey, please feel free to e-mail Sarah Hempstead:
