New CME Course: A Case-Based Approach to Diagnosing Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Primary Care

Course Launch Announcement: A Case-Based Approach to Diagnosing Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Primary Care

Target audience: The intended audience for the activity is Primary Care MD/DO; and NPs/PAs and other clinicians managing patients with PAH

Recent advances in treatment offer hope for many patients with PAH – but appropriate management requires recognition of the clinical picture of PAH and timely referral to specialty care. Delays in the diagnosis of PAH remain a major problem. Up to 80% of patients with PAH are classified with severe disease at diagnosis, and the mean time from symptom onset to diagnosis is estimated to be 27-33 months.
This activity is the second in a program, Diagnosing and Managing PAH: An Evolving Paradigm, specifically designed to address persistent gaps in the knowledge of primary care clinicians. In this case-based activity, experts in the diagnosis and management of PAH will review key concepts and common clinical scenarios specifically for primary care clinicians.
This activity, A Case-Based Approach to Diagnosing Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Primary Careoffers 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™, 0.50 AAFP CME Credit or 0.50 AANP contact hour of continuing education and is available at: http://realcme.com/cms/node/708771.
