The NICE Guidelines for IPF were published in 2013 and supercede the IPF sections of the BTS ILD Guideline published in 2008. Other sections of the BTS Guideline remain valid. 

BTS Guidelines published more than five years ago are marked as archived. The Guideline content/recommendations have not been checked to confirm continued validity at the date of archival and readers should bear in mind that new evidence may have been published since the Guideline was produced.
