Congratulations to Dr Catherine Houghton and Mary Bourke on their new paper “Exploring the need for Transition Readiness Scales within cystic fibrosis services: A qualitative descriptive study”, which was published recently in the Journal of Clinical Nursing.

Mary and Catherine used semi-structured interviews to explore healthcare professionals’ and patients’ perceptions of the potential use of a Transition Readiness Scale in cystic fibrosis care.

Mary Bourke is a Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research nurse at the HRB Clinical Research Facility, Galway combined with clinical nursing in CF services at Galway University Hospital. She is currently coordinating a Phase 3 randomized controlled trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of the next generation CF drug.
