INVITATION to participate in the ECFS DNWG project: European Sweat Test Survey
"Real life practice of sweat testing in Europe and development of an ECFS sweat test guideline for diagnosis of CF"
A project performed by the ECFS Diagnostic Network Working Group
On behalf of the ECFS Diagnostic Network Working Group, we are performing a survey about the current sweat test practice in Europe.
The aim of the project is to better understand and improve sweat test practices in European countries, and to develop harmonised European recommendations on sweat testing (ECFS sweat test guideline for diagnosis of CF).
We kindly invite you to join this project and to share your experiences with sweat test for the diagnosis of CF at your center. This survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. We ask that each center fills in the survey with input from both the responsible CF clinician and laboratory. You will require some data on the number of sweat tests undertaken in 2014 and outcomes. All participating centres/contributors will be acknowledged in the description of the study group.

Please reply to the survey by 30 November 2015.
