About

Jeffrey Swigris

Jeffrey James Swigris, DO, is a pulmonologist at National Jewish Health. Dr. Swigris is in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. Clinical Interests: My clinical interest is in evaluating and caring for patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) of any cause. The emphasis of my approach to care is on forming a partnership with patients and their spouses/partners/caregivers, so, together, we can make the best decisions possible about their evaluation and management. I run a clinical research lab whose goal is to explore interesting and important clinical questions regarding ILD, including ILD related to connective tissue disease. The global mission of my individual research program is to explore how patients live with and experience ILD, how we assess that experience, and how we, as medical providers, might improve quality of life in patients suffering from ILD. I have a particular interest in developing and investigating so-called patient-reported outcome measures (PRO) in ILD. These are instruments designed to capture patients' perceptions of what life is like with ILD and are used to assess whether and how our therapeutic interventions benefit (or harm) patients.
