Abstract

Worldwide, the life expectancy of adults with cystic fibrosis has increased substantially over the last two decades and cystic fibrosis can no longer be regarded as a paediatric condition. Adults with cystic fibrosis are becoming a new ageing population and are working, having families of their own and are likely to retire due to old age rather than ill health. Despite this progress, little is known about how people with cystic fibrosis are experiencing ageing with this long-term condition and how prepared they are for older age. This paper highlights the implications that ageing with cystic fibrosis may have for specialist health services and in particular the individual with cystic fibrosis, as well as providing pointers for future research.
