18:00-19:00 CET

Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are complex and heterogeneous diseases. The use of traditional diagnostic classification in ILD can lead to suboptimal management, which is worsened by not considering the molecular pathways, biological complexity, and disease phenotypes. The multidisciplinary approach to ILDs, beyond the pharmacological management, may improve patient's outcomes. A multidisciplinary care team model is a potential way to implement a "treatable traits" strategy into clinical practice with the aim of improving patients' outcomes.

Educational aims:

  • Introduce the concept of health literacy by the patients, who will participate for the first time in a multi-assembly webinar with such an active role.
  • The concepts of frailty, compassion and empathy will be discussed and integrated in the current literature of ILDs.
  • Ventilatory support, a contradictory item in Pulmonary Fibrosis, starting from non-invasive to mechanical ventilation in ILD patients will be discussed.
  • Current PR models

Topics

  • Cough in ILD: A treatable trait? - Arietta Spinou
  • Relevance of assessment and treatment of respiratory muscle dysfunction in ILD - Daniel Langer
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation in IPF: prime time? - Ioannis Vogiatzis
  • Clinical nursing specialism and patient-centred care - Andreja Šajni?

Target audience

  • Pulmonologists
  • Clinicians
  • Patients
  • ILD specialists

Format

The webinar will include 45 minutes of lectures, and 15 minutes of interactive discussions with participants.
