Healthcare Professional ILD Study Sessions ‘Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) in the community’.
Do you know your ILD from your COPD? Lung Fibrosis: everything you ever wanted to know.
Our mission is to raise awareness of ILD, educate and support all health professionals to best manage patients with ILD and we are pleased to offer free study sessions for all health professionals and can deliver these in your area, at your convenience. The sessions are presented by experienced ILD Specialist Nurses (ILD INN Committee members) and can be tailored according to your and your patients’ needs.
Every session will broadly cover:
- What is ILD?
- How is it recognised?
- How is ILD diagnosed?
- How is it treated?
- What can the community health care professionals do to help their patients?
The programme for this year has not yet been finalised.
ILD INN Committee members and ILD Specialist Nurses, Geraldine Burge and Helen Morris will be giving formal presentations and are available for questions on recognising ILD/IPF symptoms/diagnosis, available treatments and best practice care.

Some background on how the study sessions began
Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis and the ILD INN have been working together for several years for the benefit of patients living with ILD, most commonly Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). Together we developed this programme for health professionals across the England and Wales, who want to learn more about ILD and how best to care for their patients living with ILD and IPF.
The ILD Interdisciplinary Network provides a supportive network to promote ILD specialty practice through education and professional development and influences the policy of ILD care.
