An early and accurate diagnosis of ILD and its specific type is vital to directing therapy and monitoring disease course and therapeutic response, but these conditions are often mischaracterized and a correct diagnosis is very often delayed. This activity will examine recent advances in ILD diagnosis and treatment.

Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant should be able to:
- Discuss advances in ILD diagnosis and assessment.
- Review evidence-based treatment strategies for ILD.
- Discuss the optimal management of common comorbidities associated with ILD.
