ATTENTION: CHANGES TO YOUR MEDICATION ORDERS
Due to process changes within St. Lukes it will now take longer to place orders and refill medications. If a prior authorization is needed, please allow up to 10 working days. If you have questions please contact the CF center @ 208-381-7092.
A reminder to submit your question by January 31: http://www.cff.org/InsightCF
CF Community Members,
Where do you wish CF research would go next? What information from the CF Foundation Patient Registry do you wish you knew? What CF trends are you, your colleagues and your patients and families wanting to know more about?
All CF community members are invited to participate in the new CF Foundation initiative, “Insight CF.” CF clinicians, researchers, patients, and families are encouraged to submit questions to help drive a research agenda. Questions will be collected and then voted on by the CF community. The CF Foundation will then assemble a multidisciplinary research team to develop a study design and analysis plan to address the top questions. Although the project prefers questions that can be answered using data from the CF Foundation Patient Registry, all questions are welcome!
Submit your question here: http://www.cff.org/InsightCF
Please consider forwarding this message to your colleagues, patients, and families. Help us collect research questions from everyone in our community!
Thank you in advance for your time to reply to our request.
Chair of the Patient and Family Research Advisory Committee
The St. Luke’s Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Center of Idaho has been serving patients and families in Idaho and surrounding states for over 14 years. The St. Luke’s Cystic Fibrosis Center of Idaho is fully accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to care for pediatric and adult patients.
The St. Luke’s CF Center of Idaho is an outpatient clinic of St. Luke’s Health Systems, and is located in the Children’s Specialty Center on St. Luke’s Boise campus.
We place a very strong emphasis on infection control at the St. Luke’s CF Center of Idaho, and follow the recommendations of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. All of our team members wash their hands before you are called back for your clinic visit. The team will put a cover gown and mask on before entering your examination room. Gloves will be worn with patient contact.
Upon leaving the room the team member will remove their gown and gloves and either wash their hands with soap and water or use alcohol based hand sanitizers. Staff use antimicrobial wipes to clean rooms between each patient.
To further control infection, you will need to wear a mask while in the waiting room. You will need to be 6 feet between patients. There are infection control supply towers throughout the building and at registration. You need to have masks when you go to the hospital to have labs, medical imaging or any procedure done.
The infection control guidelines we follow are available on this website.
