This 3D, case-based, live activity will cover the diagnosis, treatment, and management of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in clinical practice.


This activity is designed for US-based academic and community-based pulmonologists, radiologists, and primary care providers; registered nurses; advanced practice nurses; physician assistants; and respiratory therapists who form the multidisciplinary team involved in the management of patients with IPF.


Upon completion of the program, attendees should be able to:

  • Describe updated information from the most recent, evidence-based IPF treatment guidelines to enhance treatment tolerability and safety, and improve patient outcomes
  • Review the mechanisms of action of agents that target fibroblast accumulation and myofibroblast differentiation in patients with IPF, as well as clinical trial data on their efficacy, tolerability, and safety profiles; and
  • Discuss best practices for the provision of interdisciplinary team-based comprehensive care and disease management, with an emphasis on safety and tolerability concerns for patients with IPF, particularly those with comorbid conditions.
