Burst CME™ Plus - Matching Treatment to Patient in PAH

Release Date: February 9, 2021
Expiration Date: February 9, 2022

Activity Overview

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), which eventually leads to right-sided heart failure, is a devastating progressive disease that poses a considerable burden on quality of life. Advancements in drug therapy and patient care over the past 10 years have improved morbidity and mortality rates for patients with PAH. Though new therapies have played a major role in this improvement, there remains a need to ensure timely diagnosis, improve therapeutic selection and strategies, and continue to enhance overall patient care.

This engaging, multimedia program integrates video commentary from an expert thought leader, Victor Tapson, MD, with text-based elements and is designed to provide a concise overview of treatment options for PAH and best practices for therapeutic decision-making.
