1st ever Young Persons Virtual Event
by Joanne Osmond 28th July 2020
1st Virtual Young Persons Event
We have organised a virtual meeting for young people with Cystic Fibrosis, aged 13 years and above, to provide them with an opportunity to hear from and interact with others that will have been experiencing the impact of shielding due to COVID19. This first meeting will take place via Zoom and will have an introductory presentation from the Cystic Fibrosis Clinical Psychologists, Play Therapist and Family Support Worker, which will hopefully set the scene for an informal discussion between our young people attending. We will also hear from Beth Millman, Cystic Fibrosis Physiotherapist, who will talk about some of the different ways of exercising, bearing in mind the current limitations of attending leisure centres and gyms.
There will be an opportunity for our young people to feed back to us regarding their thoughts about the event and put forward ideas for any future similar events, this is important as these opportunities are for YOU, and should be reflective of the sort of things that you might want to hear about, discuss with others, and perhaps any individual disciplines within the CF multidisciplinary team, e.g., with a dietician regarding nutrition, nurses regarding specific health needs etc.
