Lung Foundation Australia has a range of evidence-based services and resources that will enable your patients to better understand and manage their condition. Our services and resources are designed to support clinical treatment plans and help drive optimal health outcomes.
Discussing these resources with your patients can be a helpful way to raise and discuss their needs at each phase of their ILD diagnosis and care journey. Please click the button below to visit our patient pages for the full suite of educational and support resources for patients.
Lung Foundation Australia and the Centre of Research Excellence in Pulmonary Fibrosis have partnered to develop an extensive and growing suite of freely available educational resources and webinars for patients living with Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD).
