Live Medical Crossfire®: Improving Prognosis in SSc-ILD: Best Practices in Diagnosis, Optimizing Clinical Management, and Efficient Patient Communication

Live Medical Crossfire®: Improving Prognosis in SSc-ILD: Best Practices in Diagnosis, Optimizing Clinical Management, and Efficient Patient Communication


May 19, 2021

Live Webcast!

5:30 – 6:30pm ET

Overview

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a frequent, debilitating complication of systemic sclerosis (SSc) with a complex pathophysiology. Up to 90% of the 50,000 individuals in the United States who have received diagnoses of SSc will develop some degree of ILD, determining disease severity and prognosis. SSc-ILD is characterized by systemic inflammation, progressive scarring of the lungs, and eventual respiratory failure. Until recently, there were no approved therapies, but now patients with SSc-ILD may benefit from early intervention to prevent disease progression.

A panel of experts will first review the classification and pathophysiology of SSc-ILD and then share insights for initial pulmonary assessment. Patient cases will be used to identify predictors of disease progression and considerations for initiation of therapy with best approaches for shared decision-making in discussing patient expectations.

Benefits of Attending

  • Recognize predictors of ILD progression in patients with systematic sclerosis
  • Gain diagnostic insights on clinical and PFT-identified features
  • Evaluate recently approved treatment for SSc-ILD and potential for early disease intervention
  • Network with leading faculty experts

Target Audience

These activities are intended for attendees of the American Thoracic Society 2021 Annual Meeting, including pulmonologists and critical care specialists. Rheumatologists, dermatologists, clinical immunologists, allergists, primary care clinicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other specialists interested in the treatment of patients with SSc-ILD are also invited to participate in the educational curriculum.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review the pathophysiology of SSc-ILD and the implications new insights have for diagnosing and treating the disease
  • Recognize key risk factors and diagnostic tests to improve early symptom recognition and prognosis of the disease
  • Evaluate key data on new and emerging treatment options for SSc-ILD to properly educate patients
  • Implement team-based strategies to improve individualization of treatment plans for patients with SSc-ILD
