Utilizing Evidence-Based Strategies to Improve Outcomes in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Program Overview

This CME/CNE series includes four, 30-minute modules that bring learners up-to-date regarding recent advances in the treatment and management of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Aaron B. Waxman, MD, PhD will interview four PAH experts, providing insight into recent science, clinical trial data of emerging and emerged therapies and current therapeutic options. Strategies for delivering comprehensive, interprofessional care in PAH will be discussed. Each module, worth 0.50 CME credits or 0.50 CNE contact hours, will provide clinicians with practical, clinically relevant information to utilize when treating and managing patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.
