Cindy George is Senior Director of Partnerships for Sustaining Daily Care at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). She has extensive experience leading change as a Family Nurse Practitioner in pediatric and adult healthcare settings. Over the past two decades, her main area of practice focused on adults living with cystic fibrosis (CF) in which she played a key role in establishing an adult CF program in Washington, DC. In 2008, she joined CFF leading national efforts to promote a culture of CF research and to facilitate innovation that address the challenges of balancing CF treatments with everyday life. A key evidence-based initiative, the Partnership Enhancement Program (PEP), helps clinicians meet the evolving demands in providing CF care and effectively co-producing care with people/families with CF by training them in relationship-centered communication skills, not traditionally offered in professional education. Her national leadership, her role as a QI coach, and certified Partnership Enhancement trainer have contributed to advances in CF care delivery.
