Program Description

Although the most common of the restrictive lung diseases, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare but deadly disease that affects an estimated 6.8 to 42.7 per 100,000 people, with higher rates in those older than 65 years. In the United States, IPF results in approximately 40,000 deaths annually.1

Education to community pulmonologists, radiologists, primary care physicians, and the multidisciplinary team is important to increase knowledge related to recognition and diagnosis. Clinicians need to be aware of when to refer patients with potential IPF to specialty centers with pulmonologists, radiologists, and pathologists specialized in interstitial lung disease (ILD). All providers in the multidisciplinary and multispecialty treatment team need education related to recent ATS/ERS/JRS/ALAT guidelines and mechanisms of action for the approved treatments for IPF.

On January 18, 2017, a CME Outfitters Live and On Demand featured a discussion of baseline data of self-reported gaps in care and skills in recognition, referral, and treatment of IPF. To meet the learning preferences of busy clinicians, the activity has been divided into three short modules.

Module 1: Working Together to Diagnose IPF: Identifying the Signs and Symptoms

Module 2: Title-Working Together to Diagnose IPF: A Multidisciplinary Approach (you are here)

Module 3: Title-Selecting Appropriate Treatment for Patients With IPF: Applying Guidelines and Clinical Evidence

Each module is certified for 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM and 0.50 CE for Pharmacists (0.05 CEUs). We encourage participants to complete all three modules to optimize the learning experience and to gain valuable insights for treating their patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
