Mr. Seo Am Hur, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC

This session will share major findings from a large prospective cohort project that investigated physical activity in patients with fibrotic ILD. The talk will focus on 1) the impact of psychological deficits (depression, anxiety, sleep quality) and pain on daily physical activity in patients with ILD; 2) the validity of physical activity self-report; and 3) minimal important difference in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity in patients with ILD.

At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of physical activity in the maintenance of health in patients with fibrotic ILD;
  • Understand the potential impact of psychological deficits and pain on daily physical activity in patients with fibrotic ILD; and
  • Describe the concept of minimal important difference (MID) and the MID for weekly moderate-to-vigorous physical activity minutes in patients with fibrotic ILD.
