In this video shared by the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, we see a webinar filmed at the PFF Summit: From Bench to Bedside held in Washington D.C. in November 2015.

Meet some PH patients and find out what it’s like living with the disease. 

Dr. Sonye K. Danoff presents “Difficult Conversations: Discussing Prognosis and Goals of Care” where she talks about the importance of doctors discussing the prognosis of patients and end-of-life care. Dr. Danoff explains that it’s often very difficult for doctors to approach the subject with patients, but that it’s important for the patient to fully understand what’s going to happen to them and how their care is going to progress.
