Facing IPF Together: A Case-Based Team Approach to Managing IPF

IPF Diagnosis and Treatment with Case Review
Current diagnosis and individualized patient care are the foci of this case-based presentation. Derived from the PILOT Regional Symposium, this deck offers the participants interactive HRCTs, the evidence to make informed treatment decisions, and interesting clinical scenarios.


Facing IPF Together: A Case-Based Team Approach to Managing IPF

What’s on the Horizon: Potential Therapies in Clinical Trials
This deck is an excellent overview of Phase II, III, and IV clinical studies of emerging treatments for patients with IPF. Several early compounds are featured, organized by mechanism of action.


Patient Session Understanding Pulmonary Fibrosis

This resource from the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation provides an overview of IPF. It is designed as an introduction to the disease for patients and caregivers, and also provides a framework for patient/provider discussions about IPF diagnosis and management.


2017 Dyspnea Grand Rounds

Experts emphasize the need for improved awareness of less common pulmonary diseases, so that clinicians not specializing in the area are alert to the possibility of these diagnoses and can initiate investigation, and facilitate early action. Explore real-world case-based scenarios in this slide presentation.

 


CHEST NSCLC 2016

Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Biomarker-driven targeted therapy of patients with NSCLC requires accurate diagnosis and staging. The pulmonary care team must acquire adequate biopsy tissue to enable histology, immunofluorescence and molecular biomarker testing.

Faculty: Momen M. Wahidi, MD, FCCP and W. Dean Wallace, MD

 


CHEST IPF 2016

Care of patients with IPF has been transformed since the 2014 FDA approval of pirfenidone and nintedanib for the treatment of patients with IPF. Providers considering these treatments for their patients face decisions of which protocol is best for an individual patient, when to start, switch or combine treatments, and how to manage side effects and dosing. Explore real-world issues of treating patients with IPF. Presented in Los Angeles, California - October 2016.

Faculty: Paul W. Noble, MD and Jonathan Goldin, PhD, MD

Grand Rounds: Applying New Options to Real World Cases

This case-based presentation used for the PILOT Grand Rounds addresses current issues in IPF. Beginning with differential diagnosis, it introduces pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management in the context of the 2011 and 2015 ATS/ERS guidelines. A summary of common comorbidities of IPF and an IPF Management Checklist are offered for managing multiple aspects of patient health.
