Interprofessional Considerations in the Management of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Thursday, March 4, 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM CT  -  Register to attend March 4
 

 

Activity Description

Most healthcare providers are not likely to encounter a meaningful amount of PAH patients potentially leading to a gap in initial diagnosis. This interprofessional activity will focus on the diagnosis gap, individualized treatment strategies, and patient-centered care practices for managing PAH treatments. The activity will begin with foundational PAH pathophysiology, then include a deep dive into PAH therapies and the most recent data surrounding their uses. Faculty will also discuss important patient-centric adverse effect management and quality of life discussions.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists, nurses, physicians and physician assistants.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Examine the underlying pathogenic pathways, progression, and presentation of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)
  • Compare and contrast current and emerging PAH treatments by mode of delivery, mechanism of action, adverse effects, and monitoring parameters
  • Discuss strategies to manage iatrogenic and progression-related scenarios to improve quality of life for PAH patients
