PURPOSE: The objective of the INTENSITY survey was to advance the understanding of respondents’ diagnostic experiences with interstistial lung diseases (ILDs), including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The survey was designed to trace the path that respondents took to diagnosis, identify obstacles they faced, and gauge the emotional impact of their journey. Results from the INTENSITY survey will help us more fully understand respondents’ diagnostic experiences so we can further efforts to improve timely diagnosis and treatment of ILDs.
