This activity has been designed for pulmonologists, cardiologists, rheumatologists, internists, and primary care physicians, as well as nurses, physician assistants, and other allied health professionals who help care for patients with PAH.
This CME program is designed to improve competence, performance, and patient care practices by instructing clinicians in the highest quality of care for patients with PAH. At the conclusion of the program, participants should be able to:
- Accurately diagnose patients through comprehensive screening and early recognition of symptoms
- Evaluate the patient’s condition and prescribe long-term optimal management, including knowing when and how to treat and when to consult with colleagues at an established PAH center
In support of improving patient care, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
