Characteristics of the center
The work of a multi-professional team includes pediatric pulmonologists, specialists in gastroenterology and nutrition in children, nurses, nutritionists, physiotherapists, social workers, clinical pharmacists, laboratory technicians for lung functions, and national service. The team also includes an art clinic, craft teachers, volunteers.
When patients come for an audit, they receive staff advice that works in combination and provides an immediate response to the needs of patients and their families. We believe that in the work of a multidisciplinary team, each team member can reach the best professional level. Thus, the best care can be given to patients and serve as a teaching, guiding, supporting, accompanying, and encouraging resource for patients their families.
The multi-professional staff meeting is held once a week to share with all staff members and formulate a plan for further treatment of patients. Once a month, a seminar for study purposes is delivered by members of the multidisciplinary team or guest lecturers on clinical topics or basic science related to the disease.

The treatment and frequency of visits to the center
At the time of diagnosis, patients are usually hospitalized for a short period to undergo a comprehensive assessment and receive guidance for other proper care at home. Subsequently, the frequency of routine visits is once a month to half a year as needed. Young patients or patients whose health condition justifies this come more often several times a week, and with the stabilization of their health the frequency of visits decreases.
We recommend visits once a month – two months as the desired average.
