A Brief Introduction To ILD And PH - Getting The Best For Our Patients
Both Interstitial Lung Disease and Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension are complex areas, beset by acronyms and interobserver variation with clunky terminology and an historic nihilism that has little place in modern practice. The objective of this session is to try and colour in the clinical landscape and improve navigation through the system for our patients, from diagnosis to newly funded therapies.
