Aim: To improve understanding of real-life ILD diagnostic practice in order to explore the implications for accurate and timely diagnosis of IPF in an era of licensed, efficacious IPF therapies.

ABOUT THE STUDY

About the project

The study takes the form of an electronic questionnaire to characterise how patients with ILD are diagnosed around the world in both expert and non-expert centres.

Why is this study being conducted?

BACKGROUND

The American and European Thoracic Societies (ATS/ERS) recommend a dynamic, integrated diagnostic process for idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP) in which clinicians, radiologists, and pathologists exchange information and determine diagnosis via consensus. This multi-disciplinary team (MDT) approach recognises the roles that clinical features, imaging and pathology all play in establishing an accurate and early ILD diagnosis. The MDT is therefore the “gold standard” in ILD diagnosis, but there is limited knowledge of the degree (and way) in which this recommendation to place the MDT at the heart of ILD diagnosis is implemented (or feasible to implement) in routine care nor on the implications for diagnosis and access to efficacious IPF therapies.

OUTPUTS – the study will:
  • Describe the variation in diagnostic approaches
  • Inform the design of a diagnostic agreement study that will provide recommendations for future diagnostic guidelines
  • Create a network of research-engaged ILD centres for future research

When is the study being conducted?

Data collection (i.e. e-questionnaire will be shared with participant sites for completion):
10 November 2016 – 31 December 2016.

Which countries are eligible for the study?

This is a global study: all countries and all clinical settings where ILDs are diagnosed. Of particular interest is the diagnostic practice (and variation in practice) in highly-populated countries that are under-represented in traditional ILD randomised controlled trials.
