1 Criteria & Guidelines for AFFILIATE PROGRAM ACCREDITATION The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) Center Committee will consider an application for accreditation of a CF Affiliate Program if it meets all criteria and complies with the Guidelines for Establishment and Administration of Affiliate Cystic Fibrosis Programs as outlined below, and fulfills a geographic and consumer need. -- CARE and INFRASTRUCTURE A CFF Affiliate Program must provide age-appropriate care for pediatric and adult patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. If the size of the adult patient population meets the criteria for establishing an adult program as outlined in this document, the Affiliate Program is required to develop a sustainable adult care program and submit an application for accreditation of the adult program. For an Affiliate Program treating only pediatric patients, a formal pediatric to adult care transition plan must be in place with a partnering CFF-accredited Center or Program within the local region to provide adult care. If a suitable partner does not exist in the local region, the affiliate is expected to provide age-appropriate care to pediatric and adult patients. CLINICAL CARE GUIDELINES FOR CF All CFF-accredited centers and programs are expected to adhere to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation s Clinical Practice Guidelines for CF (available on the CFF Web site). MULTI-DISCIPLINARY CARE TEAM & OTHER SPECIALISTS The following required care team members must regularly attend outpatient clinics and team conferences and be available for inpatient consultation or coordination of care with inpatient staff. 1.

5 GUIDELINES for the ESTABLISHMENT and ADMINISTRATION of CFF AFFILIATE PROGRAMS I. INTRODUCTION The purpose of establishing cystic fibrosis Affiliate Programs is to extend the comprehensive care and research protocols of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to serve a larger number of patients and families affected by cystic fibrosis. The formation of an Affiliate Program is intended to provide quality care for under-served areas. The core center relationship is intended to provide guidance, support and oversight as the affiliate program develops. Establishing an Affiliate Program also allows physicians who care for 20 or more CF patients to develop a formal affiliation for tertiary care and consulting services with a CFF-accredited Core Center. Geographic need will be strongly considered by the CFF Center Committee when making decisions regarding approval of Affiliate Program relationships and each such application will be judged on its own individual merit. II. DEFINITION An Affiliate Program is defined as one that meets all clinical care requirements including a physician director, associate director, multidisciplinary care team, and inpatient and outpatient facilities, and appropriate support services and personnel to meet the Affiliate Program Criteria. Such programs may not be able to attain fully accredited center status because of patient numbers or an inability to meet teaching and/or research requirements. An outreach program is defined as one where personnel from the CF Center or Program travel to a different location to see patients, thereby, operating the facility as a remote office site. Outreach programs do not qualify for affiliate status. III. ESTABLISHING AN AFFILIATE ARRANGEMENT Affiliate Program relationships may be developed only in collaboration with a fully accredited CF Center in good standing with an approved adult program (Core Center) or one that has a formal, implemented pediatric to adult care transition process in place. These relationships must be approved by the Center Committee. Developing a working relationship between two or more medical institutions is often complex and must be individualized. The following guidelines have been developed to aid in formulating such arrangements. To initiate a successful relationship, the following four basic principles must be met: A. There must be mutual respect between the Core Center and its Affiliate Program. Both parties must feel there is a benefit from such a relationship. B. The financial arrangements between the Core Center and its Affiliate Program(s) must be clearly defined. C. There must be a clear understanding of the circumstances under which caregivers from the Core Center will serve as a clinical resource or provide direct care for patients at the Affiliate Program. 5 Criteria & Guidelines for CFF Affiliate Program Accreditation

6 D. The patients and caregivers in the Affiliate Program must have access to current medical information, referral medical care and research protocols at the Core Center. One of the key roles of a Core Center is to provide educational opportunities for its Affiliate Program(s). An advantage of being an Affiliate Program is the access to information and resources from the CFF. APPLICATION PROCESS Below are the details of the application process for Affiliate Program accreditation. 1. The program seeking Affiliate accreditation will submit a CFF Affiliate Program Application to the CFFaccredited Core Center. a. Affiliate Program Applications may be requested from or the Core Center Director may obtain a copy of the application along with all other materials pertaining to accreditation of an Affiliate Program from PortCF/Resources. 2. The director of the Core Center will then conduct a site visit at the proposed Affiliate Program site. 3. Following the site visit, the Core Director must complete a narrative and critique report of the visit (templates available on PortCF as noted above). 4. If the program fulfills the requirements for affiliate status, both directors must meet to develop a formal agreement and a signed contract/letter of agreement (see Appendix I). The key issues to be included within the agreement are: a. The nature and frequency of interactions between personnel from the Core Center and the Affiliate Program to include routine quality assurance site visits by the Core Center Director to the Affiliate Program as required by section IV of these guidelines, and Affiliate Program personnel visits to the Core for benchmarking and learning purposes to occur at least every other year. The conditions under which patients from the Affiliate Program will have access to medical care in the Core Center and the plans for care of patients who develop the uncommon but expected complications of CF (i.e., pulmonary hemorrhage, liver failure, etc.); Mechanisms for consultative support to the Affiliate Program by the Core Center. b. Educational opportunities to be made available to Affiliate Program personnel and patients; c. Responsibilities of the Core Center and Affiliate Program personnel with regard to recruitment and inclusion of patients from the Affiliate Program in research projects at the Core Center; d. And, a financial agreement. 5. This completed agreement, along with the items below must be submitted via at to the CFF Center Committee for approval of the relationship. a. proposed CFF Affiliate Program s accreditation application, b. care team listing, c. physician CVs, d. pediatric to adult care transition plan, e. research referral plan (if applicable), and f. the Core Center Director s site visit reports (narrative and critiques). IV. PERIODIC QUALITY ASSURANCE SITE VISIT OF AFFILIATE PROGRAM BY CFF CORE CENTER PERSONNEL A complete quality assurance assessment of the Affiliate Program must be conducted for the initial affiliation and repeated in year two of the relationship. If deficiencies are identified, a follow-up quality assurance site visit should be performed within a year. Thereafter, a complete assessment is required every other year. The goal of quality assurance site visits is to review the activities of the Affiliate Program for adherence to CFF 6 Criteria & Guidelines for CFF Affiliate Program Accreditation

7 standards and to learn how the Affiliate s Core Center and the CF Foundation may better support the Affiliate Program as well as the Affiliate/Core relationship. Quality assurance site visits to Affiliate Programs are to be conducted by the Core Center Director (or appropriate Program Director(s) Pediatric and/or Adult depending on the patient population cared for at the Affiliate) and multi-disciplinary care team members as appropriate. The Adult Program Director should participate in the quality assurance site visit of any Affiliate Program with >20 adult patients (see section X.B below). The Pediatric Program Director should participate if the population at the Affiliate cares for primarily pediatric patients. Materials required for the Core Directors to complete site visits to their Affiliate Program(s) are available on PortCF/Resources. Site visit orientation sessions for Core Directors with Affiliates also will be offered as needed at the North American CF Conference. Site visit materials include: A. Periodic Status Report (PSR) which includes the care center team listing to be completed by the Affiliate Program and submitted to the Core Center Director B. Affiliate Program physician CVs to be submitted with the PSR C. Site visit itinerary developed by the Affiliate Program and submitted to the Core Center D. Site visit guidelines for the Affiliate Program E. Site visit guidelines for the Core Directors F. Administration Talking Points for the Core Director G. Care Center Network background materials H. Site visit workbook for the Core Director. This contains the templates for the required narrative and critique reports. The Core Director's site visit to an Affiliate should be conducted in a manner similar to the site visits made by members of the CFF Center Committee using the standard evaluation tools. The following should be assessed during the visit: A. Care team experience and availability for Affiliate Program clinics and other activities; 1. physician and team availability to patients for routine and acute care visits; 2. institutional support; and 3. facilities. B. Ten patient charts should be reviewed for documentation of team involvement in patient care and adherence to standards of care. This chart review should reflect a mix of adult and pediatric patients. C. The Core Center/Program Director and the Affiliate Program Director should discuss the visit and jointly set goals for improvement in patient care, education, and research. D. Subsequently, a letter and critique report summarizing the visit should be sent to the Affiliate Program Director with a copy provided to the Center s Adult Program Director. A copy of the letter and critique report must also be submitted to the CF Foundation either as an attachment to the Core s CFF annual center grant application update or ed to The CFF should be provided the opportunity to participate in summation meetings with Core and Affiliate Directors at the end of the Core Center visit to the Affiliate Program via conference call or Web conferencing if so requested by either the Core Center or Affiliate Program. A site visit by the CFF Center Committee to the Affiliate Program may be requested under special circumstances by either the Core Center or Affiliate Program. Such requests must be made in writing and will be considered by the Center Committee. 7 Criteria & Guidelines for CFF Affiliate Program Accreditation

8 V. REPORTING The Core Center must assure that Affiliate Program patient registry data are entered into Port CF, and IRB approval and informed assents/consents have been secured and documentation is readily available. The Core Center Director will receive a copy of the program specific registry data report on the Affiliate Program. Information on interaction with and status of the Affiliate Program must be included in the Core Center s annual center grant application update. VI. FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENT The Core Center and Affiliate Program must agree on a financial arrangement with respect to the Center Grant. The CFF will make separate payments to each program, if so directed. Alternatively, the funds can be directed to the Core Center for disbursement to the Affiliate Program. The CFF Grants Office will issue an Award Designation letter to all program directors in May of each year which allows directors to choose how the funds should be disbursed for the following grant year. The Core Center may retain funds for documented administrative costs relating to the Affiliate Program, including costs of travel to the site for clinical care, patient and team education, shared personnel such as registry coordinator at the Core Center who also enters Affiliate Program patient data, and quality assurance site visits. A. The Affiliate Program should receive a mutually agreed upon remuneration commensurate with its patient census. A portion of this money must be used for the Affiliate Program Director or his/her designee to attend the annual North American CF Conference (see Criteria). B. If CFF makes direct payment to the Affiliate Program, the Affiliate Program Director is responsible for submitting an annual Expense Report to the CFF describing the use of funds. C. If Affiliate funds are paid to the Core Center, it is the responsibility of the Core Center to record all funds transferred to the Affiliate Program(s) on the annual Center Financial Reporting Form. D. Affiliate Program agreements should be reevaluated annually. VII. PATIENT CARE CONSULTATIONS The conditions under which the Core Center will be the primary consultant and provide referral service for patients from the Affiliate Program must be established for patients of all ages and conditions (i.e., pregnancy, surgical emergencies, etc.). It is recommended that the Core Center serve as the primary referral center for patients with CF-related problems needing referral care unless patients need a service which is not available at the Core Center (e.g., transplantation). 8 Criteria & Guidelines for CFF Affiliate Program Accreditation

9 VIII. EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS The Core Center is responsible for education/training of Affiliate Program personnel. It is important that the Affiliate Program personnel be invited to attend and participate in relevant educational opportunities, such as conferences, grand rounds, patient information days, etc. A mutual exchange on teaching cases is also beneficial. It is expected that members of the Core Center and Affiliate Program teams "network" so that each Core Center team member can provide up-to-date medical information to the corresponding Affiliate Program team member on a routine basis. Affiliate Program multi-disciplinary team members should attend the CFF North American CF Conference on a regular basis. IX. RESEARCH Affiliate Programs may apply for Therapeutic Development Network designation and funding. In cases where Affiliate Programs do not have the infrastructure for a research program, a formal referral plan for patients of Affiliate Programs to participate in research at the Core Center must be developed and implemented between the Affiliate Program and the Core Center. All Affiliate Program patients should be encouraged to participate in research protocols of the Core Center (if geographically feasible). The Core Center should provide copies of protocols and consent forms to Affiliate Program personnel in a timely manner to allow submission of documents to the IRB of the Affiliate Program s institution for effective recruitment of patients. X. OTHER REQUIREMENTS A. At the time of the Core Center s site visit by the CFF Center Committee, the director of the Affiliate Program will be expected to participate in the visit, either in person or by phone, depending on geographic considerations. B. The Adult Program Director of the Core Center is to be involved with all Affiliate Program relationships when the Affiliate Program is not exclusively a Pediatric Program. The Adult Program Director should participate in the quality assurance site visit of any Affiliate Program with >20 adult patients. This contact will facilitate subsequent telephone conversations on adult issues (e.g., pregnancy) and will ease the referral of adults to the CF Center, when necessary. Furthermore, the Adult Program Director may be able to assist in the identification of internists or pulmonologists at the Affiliate location to assist with the day-to-day management of patients. Affiliate Programs that follow 40 or more CF patients over the age of 21 must have an adult program which meets one of the models for approved adult programs (Models II, III, IV, V see Appendix II). Those with less than forty but more than twenty CF patients over the age of 21 must have an Adult Program which at least meets Model I for adult care. Affiliates with less than 20 CF patients over the age of 21 should ensure that, each patient has an adult medicine specialist as a primary care provider. XI. SUMMARY The benefits of an Affiliate Program arrangement include improved access to quality CF care for people with CF who might otherwise be unable to receive care within the CFF-accredited center network and a broader patient base for clinical trials and patient registry data. Open communication will minimize problems such as personality conflicts, competition between Core Center and Affiliate Program personnel and conflicts between institutions, which can be detrimental to an ongoing Affiliate Program agreement. 9 Criteria & Guidelines for CFF Affiliate Program Accreditation
