This interactive CME/CE program will highlight recent advances in the treatment and management of patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD). The expert faculty, Drs. Dinesh Khanna and Kevin Flaherty, will first review best practices for screening and diagnosing patients. Following, recent clinical trial data of both emerging and approved agents will be analyzed and clinical relevance debated from the perspective of both a rheumatologist and a pulmonologist. To conclude, the faculty will relay strategies for engaging the interprofessional team to improve outcomes and quality of life for patients with interstitial lung disease.
