On 29 February, 2024 it is International Rare Diseases Day.
ILDs (interstitial lung diseases) are rare diseases with a significant impact on respiratory health. This day is an opportunity to highlight recent advancements in rare respiratory diseases, focusing on their diagnosis, management, and pathophysiology.
This webinar will explain:
- What genetic pulmonary fibrosis is, and which genes are involved in the disease. The audience will be informed on: how to identify and genetically analyse patients suspected of genetic pulmonary fibrosis; the prognosis, treatment options and expected comorbidities in patients with genetic pulmonary fibrosis; which relatives are at increased risk for disease; how to screen for early disease.
- What are the various types of cystic lung diseases? How are they diagnosed, and what are the available treatments?
- What are the characteristics of pulmonary hypertension in patients with ILD, and what are the available treatment options?
- Which patients and relatives may benefit from genetic testing and clinical counselling and how should these be followed-up?
- What should be the diagnostics and therapeutic assessment of cystic lung disease?
- How to diagnose and treat pulmonary hypertension in ILD patients
Following this webinar, participants will be able to recognize and optimize management of patients with:
- Genetic pulmonary fibrosis
- Cystic lung disease
- Pulmonary hypertension and ILD
This one-hour webinar will involve three experts on the subject and start with an introduction by the chair, three presentations with some case examples, follow up by an interactive discussion.
An application for accreditation of this webinar has been made to the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP) for one CME credit per one-hour attendance. If accredited, the CME credit will be granted upon attendance of at least 60 minutes during the live webinar only.
What is a webinar?
A webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting. During the webinar, you will be asked to share your opinion on issues related to the topic using interactive polls.
All participants will be able to hear the lecturer and see the slides throughout the presentation. As a participant you will be able to pose questions or discuss ideas with the other participants via the text chat facility and the speaker will respond to the questions via the microphone.
More information will be communicated in due course.
