Dr Manika spends 3-months in Southampton. Categories: Current Project Timelines: Greece

Prof Manika spent time with each member of the CF Multi-Disciplinary Team – specialist nurses, physiotherapists, dietitians, pharmacists, social workers, CF psychologist, specialist Microbiologist and palliative care team. We provided her with protocols in each of these areas and particularly pharmacy protocols for IV antibiotics. In addition, Prof Manika attended adolescent transfer clinics run in the paediatric department, the purpose of which is to smoothly transfer adolescents over to the adult CF service. Prof Manika spent time with our service manager who discussed organization and delivery of CF services, which included management of a Multi-Disciplinary Team, infrastructure and logistics around maintaining an efficient, well-resourced service.”


“My training on CF care in Adult Cystic Fibrosis Service in Southampton England has been a multidimensional experience which I hope will change my every-day work in Greece. I would like to thank all the members of the multidisciplinary team for their time and for sharing their knowledge and experience with me. I am also grateful to the Child Health International and in particular Mr. Jim Hopwood, chairman of the board of trustees of CHI for making this training possible. I would especially like to thank Dr Mary Carroll for coordinating this complex training, for introducing me to a different and wider way of thinking on CF care, and for always making me feel welcome.”
