Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is pulmonologists, radiologists, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

Learning Objective

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to utilize the most recent guidelines for the diagnosis of patients with IPF to ensure early and appropriate intervention.

Activity Description

IPF is a chronic progressive lung disease of unknown origin. To avoid misdiagnosis and delayed or inappropriate management of IPF, it is imperative to distinguish IPF from other types of interstitial lung disease. In 2018, updated guidelines with additional criteria for the diagnosis of IPF were published by the American Thoracic Society, European Respiratory Society, Japanese Respiratory Society, and Latin American Thoracic Society. In this video presentation, Dr. Fernando J. Martinez discusses how these updated guidelines can ensure early and appropriate intervention.
