High-Yield Updates in ILD
Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are difficult to diagnose, requiring advanced imaging by high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), a detailed history and physical exam directed towards hundreds of possible risk factors and comorbidities, and often, multidisciplinary support. These life-threatening diseases challenge clinicians with variable presentations, numerous treatment options, and unpredictable outcomes. ILD patients suffer from common misdiagnosis and frequent under-treatment, and are often referred for lung transplantation evaluation too late.
This activity will inform physicians and advanced practice providers about the rapidly-advancing field, which encompasses many elements important to the care of an ILD patient, including accurate diagnosis, complications and comorbidities, treatment options, research opportunities, and transplantation evaluation.
This activity is intended for the following medical professionals who have a clinical interest in Interstitial Lung Diseases: Pulmonologists; Critical Care Specialists; Internal Medicine and Primary Care Physicians; Physician Assistants; Advanced Practice Nurses; and Nurse Practitioners.
After completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
