This study aims to assess the feasibility of a new, brief intervention, the 'coopeRATE Prompt', for informing conversations between patients and physicians in routine tele-health and in-person adult Cystic Fibrosis (CF) care. The coopeRATE Prompt is two questions designed to elicit patients' concerns and goals to facilitate collaborative goal setting within the health care visit. This is a prospective single arm study that will be conducted at four CF care centers in the United States.

Detailed Description

Participating patients will be asked to complete two online surveys. The first survey, which includes the coopeRATE Prompt intervention questions, is completed 1-4 days before their upcoming healthcare visit. After completing this survey and before their visit, patients' intervention responses are shared with their physician and, if requested, other members of their care team. The second patient survey is completed within 24 hours after their healthcare visit. Participating clinicians are asked to complete a single online survey within one month after completion of patient data collection.
