Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and the Family Physician

Thursday, November 23
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis accounts for roughly 20% of all interstitial lung diseases and is something you will see in your practice, but will you recognize it? It is often misdiagnosed initially, which may have implications due to new treatments that are antifibrotic and can help to prevent the scarring that occurs in the lung. Even after being diagnosed, there is a significant role for the Family Physician in the management of this progressive, usually fatal condition. You can make a difference by recognizing the condition and getting treatment established while supporting the patient through an arduous journey.
