In this issue:

No-contact telemedicine to better protect CF clinic patients and staff during this pandemic may sound like a great idea, but is it even possible to institute? In this eCysticFibrosis Review Special Edition podcast, we find out how pulmonary and critical care specialists Dr. Dana Albon and Dr. Lindsay Somerville successfully brought telemedicine to their Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at University of Virginia Health.

Learning objectives:

  • Differentiate between full telemedicine and limited contact care, or hybrid telemedicine.
  • Identify which patients may benefit from telemedicine-based care.
