Newcastle Study day
22nd April 2016
75 delegates attended the ILD–INN ILD study day in Newcastle on 22nd April, hosted by Claire Donaldson and the ILD team in Newcastle.
Talks were presented by Professor John Simpson, Dr. Ian Forrest, Dr. Anne – Marie Bourke giving an overview of ILD, treatments on offer and managing palliative care. Other important management subjects such as oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation and the NICE guidelines were covered by Claire Donaldson, Chris Irving, and Laura McNeillie. Dr. Sylvia Worthy de-mystified radiology, by explaining what the radiologist was looking for and giving examples of the different types of radiology one would find in ILD.
All together it was a very informative day and the delegates said that the lectures increased their knowledge and confidence in managing patients with ILD.
