The 12th Australasian Cystic Fibrosis Conference (ACFC) provides a collaborative and educational forum for CF professionals to help advance CF research and care. This annual meeting brings together scientists, clinicians and caregivers from around the world to discuss and share ideas on the latest advances in CF research, care and drug development and to exchange ideas about ways to improve the health and quality of life for people with CF.
The 12th Australasian Cystic Fibrosis Conference - Optimism, Opportunities, Outcomes, will take place at the Crown Promenade Hotel, Melbourne, from 5-8 August 2017.
The conference is Australasia's largest event dedicated to cystic fibrosis (CF) and will bring together around 200 lay people and over 350 medical, allied health and nursing delegates plus CF researchers from across the region and around the world.
We have brought together an assemblage of CF specialists from a variety of backgrounds to support the vibrant agenda which will celebrate both Australasian and international breakthroughs, innovative treatments and research.
Over the four days lay and medical sessions will be held, illuminating the very latest CF research and innovation in treatment and care. As Chair of the 2017 ACFC Associate Professor Sarath Ranganathan, Director of Respiratory Medicine, Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, has brought together a committee of CF specialists from a variety of backgrounds. They are planning a valuable and vibrant program that celebrates both Australasian and international breakthroughs, innovative treatments and research.
The CEO of CFV, Karin Knoester will chair the Lay Committee and again the opportunities for education, peer support and consumer engagement will be compelling sessions with highly valuable outcomes.
