Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward pulmonologists, rheumatologists, radiologists, and critical care specialists, as well as nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other specialists involved in the management of CF-ILD.

Program Overview

This Community Practice Connections™ program provides an in-depth review of topics covered in a July 2020 virtual symposium. This unique and engaging multimedia activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects of managing patients with chronic fibrosing interstitial lung disease (CF-ILD), putting recent clinical trial data into context. The program is designed both for those who did not attend the live meeting and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Assess the radiological and histopathological patterns of fibrosis in chronic fibrosing ILDs and their role in defining disease etiology and subsequent management
  • Identify key mechanisms underlying the varied forms of chronic fibrosing ILD, clinical presentation, and management
  • Improve your ability to diagnose chronic fibrosing ILDs earlier in the course of disease to allow for prompt intervention
  • Analyze the implications of recent and ongoing clinical research for the treatment of chronic fibrosing ILDs.
