Click the video below to watch our most recent webinar: “Patient and Clinician Engagement in Treating Pulmonary Fibrosis”
Understanding where the patient is within their progression of pulmonary fibrosis, as well as any emotional barriers and stigmas, allows clinicians to treat the person rather than just the disease. Meeting patients where they are empowers them to speak directly about the concerns and issues they currently face. At the same time, chest medicine clinicians who have a more objective picture of their patients’ progression can tailor treatments and better create an atmosphere where patients are willing to engage and feel motivated to take charge of the management of pulmonary fibrosis.
With this clear understanding of discussing the best ways to bring together patients and clinicians for better engagement, CHEST Foundation, in partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim, presents this webinar on Patient and Clinician Engagement in Treating Pulmonary Fibrosis as a part of a three-part series. Other webinars in this series will address patient and clinician engagement related to COPD and asthma. This webinar will feature patient advocacy partners, clinicians, caregivers, and patients, and each will focus on how to create a planned discussion specific to each disease.
