Caring for people with cystic fibrosis has changed considerably since the first description of the disorder and continues to evolve in the era of highly effective modulator therapy. These new treatment advancements are resulting in improved health outcomes in an ever-growing adult population with improved long-term survival. This study explores potential comorbidities and mental health implications associated with increased longevity and survivorship. It also considers the need for further evolution in patient-centered care with an expanded healthcare team in a more virtually connected world.
