Pulmonary Fibrosis Webinars
Living with a rare lung disease can be challenging and at times isolating. With the aim of addressing this, Lung Foundation Australian in collaboration with Pulmonary Fibrosis Centre for Research Excellence and will be offering two free online webinars in 2018 to support people impacted by Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF) and Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF).
These webinars will be delivered by health professionals and PF patients to provide information, advice and support on living with Pulmonary Fibrosis through a range of selected topics for patients, carers, family, friends, and other health professionals.
Participants are able to view the webinar live from the comfort of their own home and will have the opportunity to ask questions during, and at the end of the presentation. Details on how to access each webinar will be provided on registration.
For those unable to attend live, the recordings will be made available on our website following each webinar.
