  • Overview

    This program increases clinician awareness of noninvasive diagnostic approaches (i.e.,  echocardiogram) and provides training tools for recognizing and interpreting high-risk features that can affect the diagnosis and treatment of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). The goal is to make an early and accurate diagnosis to prevent the progression of the disease to more advanced stages. Undiagnosed disease progression can delay initiation of potentially effective therapies and referral to PH centers, leading to more significant patient morbidity and mortality.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including cardiologists, pulmonologists, echocardiographers, sonographers, nurse practitioners and other clinicians involved in the management of patients with pulmonary hypertension.

  • Learning Objectives

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

    • Review current guidelines for the use of echocardiography in the screening and diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension
    • Discuss the practical application of echocardiography in the clinical practice of pulmonary hypertension management
    • Learn the necessary echocardiographic imaging needed for PH diagnosis and the measurements obtained from such images 
    • Practically evaluate PH patient management decision-making based on echocardiography images
  • Accreditation Statement

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and TotalCME, Inc. GLC is jointly accredited by the American 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.
