Purpose

Lessons for Optimizing Treatment (PILOT) is a national education initiative designed to provide physicians with a comprehensive continuing medical education activity that focuses on the early and accurate diagnosis of IPF while also addressing critical issues related to optimizing disease intervention and management. PILOT has attained a level of recognition and credibility across practitioner and patient communities that place it as one of the primary sources for timely and innovative education on IPF. In the 9 years since its launch, PILOT has had over 12 million hits to its Web site. In 2014, this initiative concluded with 70 live meetings and online activities that will be housed at www.pilotforipf.org

Objectives

  • Evaluate clinical trial data on available and emerging treatments for IPF and potential application to practice
  • Explain the impact and treatment of common comorbidities of IPF
  • Identify opportunities for referral as part of the multidisciplinary IPF management plan
