Kate Gent

My role as the nurse practitioner and clinic coordinator involves providing general CF care with an emphasis on diabetes management and fertility counselling. I help follow patients who are newly diagnosed to provide education about their CF.  I collaborate with the pediatric CF team to help with the transition process from pediatrics to adult care and attend transition clinic at The Hospital for Sick Children and the initial visit to our adult clinic. I work closely with the Lung Transplant program at Toronto General Hospital to help manage patients before and after transplant. I collaborate with other CF team members to ensure that quality care is provided for patients by connecting them with resources and the team expert, who is best equipped to address their individual concerns.
