Increased knowledge of IPF will help early and accurate diagnosis – sign up for our inspring nurse lecture series for 2018!

Education for healthcare professionals is one of our top priorities and we are committed to providing relevant and accurate information and education to help patients with IPF. This is why Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis and the Interstitial Lung Disease Interdisciplinary Network (ILD-INN) have partnered to deliver lectures around the country and we are delighted to announce we will deliver more lectures in 2018.

With funding from Roche to support the programme, lectures have now been delivered by senior committee members of the ILD-INN (The Interstitial Lung Disease Interdisciplinary Nurse Network) to enthusiastic groups of practice and community nurses around the country.

The lectures deliver highly-specialised and informative information about how to detect and recognise early symptoms of IPF in patients presenting to their GPs for the first time with what can often appear to be a chest infection or persistent asthma.

The presentations delivered by the ILD specialist nurse committee feature vital facts and latest research info to help practice and community nurses to spot early symptoms and thereby speed up time to and accurate IPF diagnosis. This helps to make sure that IPF patients can start on their treatment pathway at the earliest possible opportunity.

If you are a health professional who is interested in the inspiring 2018 lecture series, please email us info@actionpulmonaryfibrosis.org.
