Interstitial Lung Disease Spotlight

  • e-Learning

The Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Spotlight consists of sessions addressing topics including diagnostic challenges; multidisciplinary diagnosis and care; education on pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine; the role of genetics in pulmonary fibrosis risk and disease progression; comorbidities in ILD; and treatment of lung cancer in patients with ILD.

Supported in part by an independent medical education grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Genentech, Inc.

Course Objectives

After completing this online course, you will be able to:

  1. Review the epidemiology, natural history, and treatment options of scleroderma-pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
  2. Review incidence of lung cancer in ILA/ILD patients and association of increased cancer risk with certain subtypes.
  3. Recognize the principles of a multidisciplinary case discussion in the diagnosis of ILD.
  4. Determine the role of genetics in early detection and prognostication in pulmonary fibrosis. Utilize available guidelines to diagnose interstitial and fibrotic lung diseases.
  5. Clarify existing CT scan criteria diagnostics of usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) and illustrate some of the potential problems in their application and ways that they can be improved.
