Sample NCP for Cystic Fibrosis

Here is a sample NCP for Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening inherited disorder causing severe damage to the lungs and nutritional deficiencies.

Before preparing an NCP for Cystic Fibrosis, you might want to consider the following points:
  • Cystic Fibrosis is most oftenly treated as a pediatric respiratory disorder although patients now have a 50% chance to live past 28 years of age.
  • Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited and long-term illness,considered fatal in early life, affecting various organs and systems so when identifying nursing problems, you NEED to prioritize. Always think ABC and Maslow.
  • When preparing the assessment part of your nursing care plan, make sure to keep your patient in mind. For example, when including tachypnea as part of your assessment for a school-aged child, remember that the normal respiratory rate in children is faster than in adults.
  • When including genetic counseling and fertility evaluation as part of your discharge planning and patient teachings (if writing an NCP for an adolescent or an adult client, that is), make sure you read something on it. Hint: Young adults with cystic fibrosis have to deal with marriage and intimacy issues.
