Redesigning interstitial lung disease clinic care through interprofessional collaboration

J Interprof Care. 2021 Apr 17:1-11. doi: 10.1080/13561820.2021.1884051. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDescriptions of how to foster and accomplish interprofessional collaboration (IPC) in practice across different healthcare settings are needed. This paper examines the transformation of a normative interstitial lung disease (ILD) clinic to an IPC delivering person-centric care across an outpatient specialty clinic and the community. It describes how the IPC was started; the actions undertaken to do this; and the processes supporting it within the outpatient clinic, and between it and its community-based partners. Qualitative research methods (participants-as-co-researchers, unstructured interviews, thematic content analysis) were used with the two physicians founding the IPC to understand this transformation process; this is supplemented with preliminary findings of interviews with patients/carers (N = 30) attending the outpatient clinic. Analysis suggests the power of IPC to improve patients' quality of life and death, reduce acute care use and hospitalization, and realize patient preferences for location of death. Despite this, the ILD IPC encounters resistance from larger institutional and political forces.PMID:33870830 | DOI:10.1080/13561820.2021.1884051

We report the case of an elderly male with SSc-SLE overlap syndrome combined with scleroderma renal crisis and SSc-TMA. Diagnoses: The patient has typical of SSc on the face and hands, combined with pulmonary artery hypertension, interstitial lung disease, heart failure and malignant hypertension, as well as SLE, lupus nephritis class V, and TMA, which were definitively diagnosed by clinical laboratory examination and renal histopathology. Interventions: The patient was treated with prednisone, cyclophosphamid, renin-angiotensin system inhibitors, diuretics, and acetylcysteine. Outcomes: The patient died suddenly ...

AbstractObjectiveTo retrospectively evaluate if texture-based radiomics features are able to detect interstitial lung disease (ILD) and to distinguish between the different disease stages in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) in comparison with mere visual analysis of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT).MethodsSixty patients (46 females, median age 56 years) with SSc who underwent HRCT of the thorax were retrospectively analyzed. Visual analysis was performed by two radiologists for the presence of ILD features. Gender, age, and pulmonary function (GAP) stage was calculated from clinical data (gender, age, pulmo...

Purpose of review Interstitial lung disease (ILD) associates with disease burden and reduced life expectancy in systemic sclerosis (SSc). As ILD afflicts around 50% of SSc patients and is often present from early on, there is rationale for early and universal ILD screening. With the approval of the first SSc-ILD therapy last year, there is an increasing need for ILD classifications to assign the right treatment to the right patient. Here, we discuss recent advances on screening, detection, and classification of SSc-ILD. Recent findings Although prospective datasets from a nationwide population-based SSc cohort confirm...

This study had 3 components. First, all 68 CCN sites were surveyed to determine the characteristics of their current ILD clinics. Second, an online, three-round modified Delphi survey was conducted between October and December 2019 with 48 ILD experts participating in total. Items for round one were generated using expert interviews. During rounds 1 and 2, experts rated the importance of each item on a 5-point Likert scale. The a priori threshold for consensus was greater than 75% of experts rating an item as important or very important. In round 3, experts graded items that met consensus and ranked items deemed essential ...

Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) patients receiving steroid treatment tend to be immobilized by dyspnea and muscle weakness as the disease progresses. We therefore expected that steroid treatment for ILDs would have a greater effect on muscle function under severe dyspnea. To test this hypothesis, we evaluated whether the effect of corticosteroid treatment on peripheral muscle force and exercise capacity varied according to patients ’ dyspnea severity.

Authors: Rajpoot A, Garg K, Saini V, Gupta N Abstract Evaluation of mental health in chronic lung diseases like interstitial lung disease (ILD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has always been neglected and underrated. The aim of the study was to determine the psychological morbidity in patients of ILD and to determine its various socio-clinical and psychological correlates. A cross-sectional clinic based descriptive study with 50 ILD patients, 30 COPD patients and 30 healthy controls was undertaken. Psychological distress was assessed using different psychological scales, like Genera...
