  18 June 2020

Chronic lung infections and their treatment pose risks for the development of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in people with cystic fibrosis (PWCF). In this study, we evaluated the attitudes of healthcare providers’ (HCP) and PWCF or their parents’ toward AMR within the international CF community.

These results highlight that AMR is relevant to CF HCP and PWCF internationally, indicating that educational tools and research are warranted.
