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.
The PHA Preceptorship Program is designed to improve competence, performance, and patient care practices by instructing front-line clinicians in the highest quality of care for patients with PAH by combining didactic discourse and highly interactive case-based discussion. At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Define key pathophysiologic and epidemiologic components of PAH
- Accurately diagnose patients through comprehensive screening and early recognition of symptoms
- Evaluate the patient’s condition and prescribe optimal long-term management, including knowing when and how to treat and when to consult with colleagues at an established PAH center
