IPF Peer Support Program for Patients and Carers Living with IPF

Lung Foundation Australia has recently been trialling an IPF Patient Peer Support Program comprising a Facebook Group and a telephone Peer Support Program. The Peer Support Program provides an opportunity for patients and carers living with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) to connect with other people who are living with the same disease in order to share experiences and provide each other with moral support.

The feedback from the IPF patients involved, both participants and volunteers, has been very positive and the IPF Peer Support Program continues to gain new members regularly. If you would like to learn more about the IPF Peer Support Program or would like to participate please contact Lung Foundation Australia’s Information and Support Centre on 1800 654 301 or by emailing enquiries@lungfoundation.com.au.
