Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Meeting - Self Care & ILD
Let's talk self-care of interstitial lung disease/pulmonary fibrosis! We'll be meeting with Shane Vandenameele, RN, BSN - Nurse Clinician in the Interstitial Lung Disease Program.
The process of self-care involves three core elements of self-care maintenance, monitoring, and management. These elements are interrelated and thought to be mastered in sequence. Our presenter will give a broad overview of medication adherence, exercise, monitoring symptoms and signs of infection and how to respond to any changes. There will be time following the presentation for a discussion on how you fit these things into your life and how it's been helpful for you.
