What we do
The Asthma Care Program provides comprehensive asthma care for children with moderate to severe asthma. Our paediatric pulmonologists work together with nurse practitioners, nurses and respiratory therapists to offer a multidisciplinary approach to treating children and adolescents with severe asthma.
The Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at The Hospital for Sick Children consists of numerous specialists who collaborate to provide multidisciplinary care for the cystic fibrosis patient. The interdisciplinary health-care team forms the core of our centre and meets regularly to assess the clinical, educational and psychosocial needs of the family and to plan and evaluate care provided.
The Hospital for Sick Children's team consists of paediatric respirologists, gastroenterologists, nutritionists, specialized nurse practioners, physiotherapists, and social workers. Additional expertise from genetic counsellors, interventional radiologists, physiotherapists, pharmacists and respiratory technologists complete the team. Transplant surgeons and their teams provide the capability for lung transplants for those patients who are candidates.
