Slide: 36 of 37

What To Discuss With Your Patients and Their Caregivers

When considering rhGH treatment for patients with CF, conversations with patients and their caregivers should include these concepts: that the evidence about benefits and harms of rhGH treatment for patients with CF is limited; whether the potential for reduced hospitalizations is applicable for the individual patient; whether there are concerns for the individual patient about long-term effects on diabetes and cancer risks; and the values and preferences of patients and caregivers concerning rhGH injections.
