STUDY BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
CF healthcare providers often do not have all the information to accurately know if their patientsâ?? are adherent to treatment prescribed.. Patient nonadherence is a large contributor to poor health outcomes and increased clinic and hospital visits.  This study  will look at two potentially effective adherence interventions for 11 to 20 year old CF patients, seen in outpatient CF clinics. The two intervention strategies are: (1) providing medication adherence scores based on pharmacy refill records to the CF Team, and (2) implementing a comprehensive adherence program that includes assessment of knowledge of disease, skills in performing treatment-related behaviors, and problem-solving key barriers to adherence.
