Can Open Your World
to Available Resources
OPEN DOORS™ is a resource that specializes in providing personalized support and advice for people who have been prescribed OFEV® (nintedanib) capsules to help treat their idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). In addition, caregivers and physicians can find resources that meet their needs and help them in their roles in helping patients.
At OPEN DOORS™, we understand the challenges of living with IPF. That’s why you’ll find information that can help you:
- Understand your disease
- Understand how IPF will affect you and your family
- Play a larger role in your health
- Find financial assistance to help you afford your medication
- Access social resources for you and your caregiver
- Set up a training session with a Clinical Educator, if you have not already done so
Our dedicated nurses are highly trained IPF experts who will provide one-on-one support. You can talk to them at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round. Once you enroll, a nurse counselor will be assigned to you. You can:
- Talk about your disease
- Ask about your treatment
- Discuss any other aspect of IPF
At OPEN DOORS™ you can speak with a trained IPF nurse who can periodically call to check on how you are doing and to answer any questions you may have. Also, if you haven’t already met with a Clinical Educator, you can meet with one of these highly trained individuals who can conduct an educational session for patients and caregivers. Just call OPEN DOORS™ to put in a request.
There are also resources available through OPEN DOORS™ to help you afford your medication. Our Social Resource Center will help you identify local lifestyle and psychosocial support for you and your caregiver.
