Albert Einstein College of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Commercial Supporter

This activity is made possible by an unrestricted educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim.

Program Description

This interactive, case-based “Immersion Learning” professional education web program is designed to enhance clinicians’ skills in addressing the relevant medical, communication, and behavioral context of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) management. The program will include a didactic video presentation synced to PowerPoint slides with three modules: an interactive case study in two parts that will take approximately an hour each to complete and a moderated discussion with a patient with IPF, now post lung transplant and a roundtable discussion that will also take approximately an hour each to view in their entirety. Clinicians will learn to apply powerful and underutilized patient-centered communication skills to diagnose, evaluate, make shared decisions with patients about treatment, and assess and enhance adherence to medications for IPF.

Intended Audience

Pulmonologists, primary care internists, family physicians, and general practice physicians, as well as physician assistants, nurse practitioners and registered nurses

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better prepared to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of effective patient-centered communication skills
  • Review patient-centered communication strategies specific to IPF
  • Discuss issues surrounding IPF pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment that are needed to support the development of effective patient clinician communication about IPF

Statement of Need

Due to the prevalence of IPF as well as gaps in physicians skills and knowledge in the pharmacotherapy, indications for referral, behavioral and lifestyle interventions, and the sociolinguistics of communication in the care of patients with IPF, an Advisory Board of experts in IPF and clinical communication met and determined that there is a need to define and create a educational program that will enhance clinicians’ ability to detect, diagnose, evaluate, and manage patients with IPF.
