Lung Foundation Australia (LFA), in collaboration with the Centre of Research Excellence in Pulmonary Fibrosis (CRE-PF), look forward to presenting this webinar on Updates on Treatments for Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF).
Our expert clinician, Professor Dan Chambers, will provide an overview of PF and an insight into the current treatments and therapies to help get the most out of your treatment and care.
We will also be joined by two consumer representatives who will answer some of the most asked questions from the community around life on PF treatment.
Both pre-submitted and live questions from participants joining the webinar will be answered by the panel.
