PURPOSE: Cystic Fibrosis is a chronic, autosomal recessive disorder that requires treatment with complex medical regiments and specialized diets. Adherence to these treatment plans remains discouragingly low, with a rate ranging between 31-53% for inhaled antibiotics. Educational programs are being developed to increase the knowledge, attitudes and practices of Cystic Fibrosis patients, providers and caregivers. CareMessage is a text messaging service that utilizes a database of questions and statements to send messages to a designated population, and to send prewritten feedback based on the responses given.
