  • Overview

    In the management of the PAH patient, the use of risk assessment algorithms has become de rigueur for the regular determination of disease progression and the effectiveness of treatment.  However, from the registries, from which the modern risk assessment models have been developed, it is clear that the majority of patients fall into the intermediate-risk category. And yet, within this broad category, there is a spectrum of disease severity, medical treatment need, and survivorship.  Using risk assessment effectively in the modern era will rely on a rethinking of how to use risk assessment and adjusting disease management strategies appropriately. This program explores new ideas in the use and application of risk assessment protocols and the impact these have on the use of multimodal, combination therapy, and lung transplantation. 

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, registered nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with pulmonary hypertension.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    1. Discuss the importance of periodic risk assessment for PAH
    2. Consider different approaches to stratifying the spectrum of risk in PAH
    3. Review the goals of PAH therapy and the potential application of triple combination therapy to achieve low-risk status in the PAH patient
    4. Discuss the balance between risks and benefits with more aggressive therapeutic approaches
