  • Overview

    The 2022 ERS/ESC revision of guidelines for diagnosis, risk assessment, and treatment of all forms of pulmonary hypertension (PH) has created some "wrinkles" that may affect how practitioners approach PH patient management. This program explores some of the more controversial aspects of the new guidelines and, using case examples, considers how the new guidelines might affect PH patient management. 

  • 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: 

    • Gain an understanding of the 2022 ERS/ES  guidelines and algorithms developed to detect PH early in the community  
    • Identify appropriate circumstances to implement 3 or 4 strata risk assessments
    • Demonstrate best practices amongst MDs on how to impact diagnosis screening for at-risk patients subject to economic disparity, lack of access to referral centers, or understudied subtypes for the disease  
    • Enable early recognition of sub-populations of patients who are at high risk and identify appropriate screening candidates
  • Accreditation Statement

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and Total CME, LLC. 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.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.75 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
