Course Description

The differential diagnosis of interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) challenges physician expertise and often requires input from multiple disciplines, which means many patients experience delays in diagnosis. Diagnostic delays can have detrimental consequences including irreversible decline in lung function and reduced quality of life. This program aims to translate recent guidelines addressing various ILDs into more actionable and implementable guides for the practicing clinician.

Course Objectives

  • Enhance the journal readers’ experience
  • Align with the CHEST organization's educational mission

This project is funded in part by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation through a grant program administered by the Council of Medical Specialty Societies.
