New Opportunities to Identify, Prevent, and Manage Fibrosis in Children’s Interstitial and Diffuse Lung Disease

Aurora, CO US
February 9, 2023 to February 10, 2023

Did you know that only 20% of surveyed physicians identified themselves as confident in most areas of diagnosing, understanding evidence based treatment options and disease mechanisms for pulmonary fibrosis in our pediatric patients? The Childhood ILD (chILD) Network has identified these needs in the medical community and aim to significantly improve these statistics.

This conference will be a two-day, interdisciplinary, hybrid course held live at the Gaylord of the Rockies in Aurora, Colorado. The conference will be free of charge to course attendees and CME credits will be available provided by Children’s Hospital Colorado.

chILD is a term used to describe over 200 rare conditions of children with diffuse and interstitial lung disease that can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Please join us to participate in a series of conversations on the outcomes of these studies and what the data means for the future of these rare conditions in our pediatric patient populations.

National thought leaders will present their findings on this new, innovative series of treatments for pediatric fibrosis. Led by the chILD Network which is comprised of 35 centers with multidisciplinary teams - new data has been published which will change the future of chILD. In addition, a subset of centers in the chILD Research Network participate in a prospective registry with over 23 children’s hospitals participating to enroll children into a database for longitudinal study. Pulmonary fibrosis is responsible for a large portion of cases, with up to 1/4 of all children having fibrosis as part of their lung disease process.

This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for Pediatricians, Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Physicians, Pediatric and Adult Pulmonologists, Rheumatologists, Oncologists, Immunologists, Pediatric Intensivists, Neonatologists, Radiologists, Pathologists, Advanced Practice Providers, Basic and Translational Scientists, and Clinical Research Coordinators.

Learning Objectives

1. Explain the conditions associated with childhood interstitial and diffuse lung disease (chILD).
2. Review the conditions associated with pulmonary fibrosis in older children.
3. List the diagnostic criteria and ongoing longitudinal follow up measurements in older children with pulmonary fibrosis.
4. Describe the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis in older children with chILD.
5. Identify the interaction needed amongst different health care professionals (pediatricians, different specialists,) with the family and patient.
