Improving Early Recognition of ILD and the Management of IPF: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: Developing Evidence-Based Management Plans

Treatment of ILD can be a challenge for clinicians; poor outcomes and health-related quality of life attest to the significant care gaps and treatment limitations that remain. Advances in the treatment of ILD, and particularly in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, hold promise for improved care and patient outcomes. This activity will examine management strategies for IPF.
