The Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) developed the Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) Patient Charter (en français) in 2016 to inform government, healthcare professionals and all Canadians impacted by IPF about the need for access to optimal patient care from diagnosis, to treatment, to end-of-life.

The IPF Patient Charter outlines recommendations for provincial governments, institutions and healthcare organizations to improve patients’ overall quality of life, and support efforts for targeted research to develop better long-term treatments, and ultimately, find a cure.

Launched in 2016, this was a significant undertaking by the CPFF and much of its content is still valid today.
