Latest PHA Journal Addresses Overlooked Aspects of PH Care
The latest issue of Advances in Pulmonary Hypertensionaddresses pulmonary hypertension (PH) as a multifaceted disease. It also examines how aspects other than medical treatment affect care.
Volume 22, Issue 2, includes articles on:
The positive effect of APRNs and RNs on mental health and PH.
The role of caregivers
Diet and exercise.
The effects of socioeconomic and social factors on PH care.
“As healthcare professionals, we tend to focus on well-defined clinical aspects of PH that we can easily understand and treat with PAH therapy,” write guest editors Hilary DuBrock, MD, and Charles Burger, MD, FCCP, ATSF. “We all espouse a patient-centered approach that requires attention to areas beyond conventional clinical decision-making. It is our hope that the focus in this issue of Advances in Pulmonary Hypertension on understudied and often overlooked aspects of PAH care ignites more interest in these important areas.”
