Progressive Fibrosing Interstitial Lung Disease (PF-ILD) – Policy Roundtable


Fall 2020 (Date TBD)


The Institute for Health Economics (IHE) is planning a policy roundtable on progressive fibrosing interstitial lung disease (PF-ILD) in the Fall of 2020. This policy roundtable will seek to gain multi-stakeholder consensus on policy recommendations intended to optimize care for PF-ILD patients


Key areas for discuss are in the following three areas:

  • Multi-disciplinary PF-ILD guidelines
  • Education/awareness initiatives for primary care providers and policy makers
  • Optimal models of multidisciplinary care centres of excellence


The purpose of this discussion will be to bring together multiple stakeholders from across Canada to investigate the current state of evidence and information regarding PF-ILD idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and provide recommendations regarding special considerations for policy making and healthcare decision-making. This invitational forum is being organized by the Institute of Health Economics (IHE) and is supported by and developed in partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim (Canada) Ltd./Ltée.
