Cystic fibrosis is the most common genetic illness amongst caucasians, occurring in approximately one in 2500 births. Advances in drug treatment have resulted in increased life expectancy to approximately 30 years for males and 25 years for females. The chapters include: the nature, epidemiology and history of the disease; incidence and prevalance of the disease; growing up with cystic fibrosis - diagnosis, education, adherence to medical regimes; the transition to adulthood - work, independence and relationships; the social context - parents, siblings, wider families and communities; and the genetic challenge ahead. This book should be of interest to students training in health studies and medical sociology as well as to health professionals, cystic fibrosis sufferers and their families.
