ILD nurse study sessions start for 2018 to educate healthcare professionals about IPF
The first ILD/IPF Nurse Study Session of 2018 took place at Nottingham County Ground.
This is a continuation of a partnership programme between Action Pulmonary Fibrosis and the Interstitial Lung Disease Inter disciplinary Network (ILD INN) that started last year, to raise awareness of ILD and IPF amongst primary and community care.
26 health professionals from the Nottingham area attended a talk by Lead ILD Clinical Nurse Specialist Geraldine Burge. The talk covered: What is ILD, how is it recognised, diagnosed and treated and what the community HCPs do to help their patients.
As part of our commitment to education about IPF there will be many more specialist ILD/IPF study sessions throughout the year.
