Leveling the Playing Field: Overcoming Barriers to Equitable Care in ILD

More than 200 interstitial lung diseases (ILD) — from rare to relatively common – are now recognized in the United States, with most forms characterized by inflammation or fibrosis within the interstitial space. While the past several years have brought significant advances in management, the timely implementation of contemporary diagnostic and therapeutic pathways has been inconsistent by clinicians, partly due to a lack of coordinated, multidisciplinary care. Moreover, disparities in screening and treatment for patients with ILD further impedes the achievement of optimal clinical outcomes, including improved quality of life.

In this live, case-based CME Outfitters activity, a panel of experts in ILD explores strategies for implementing equitable, multidisciplinary care for all patients with ILD. The critical roles of assessing social determinants of health, engaging in shared decision-making with patients, and evaluating potential implicit bias are among the topics covered in this important initiative.
