CPFF Patient Charter - Toward Exceptional Care: A Canadian Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Patient Charter

“The Canadian Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Patient Charter is a way to call upon policymakers, health care providers and private payers to recognize IPF as a rare, rapidly lethal, chronic disease and to join in the campaign for greater awareness of this illness. The ultimate goal is to improve the overall quality and standards of care and ensure equal access to a continuum of supports for all Canadians affected by IPF.

The Charter was developed by the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) in close consultation with a national network of patients, caregivers, clinicians and health system leaders, many of whom came together in the spring of 2016 at a policy roundtable organized by the Institute of Health Economics (IHE).”
