Study days: General management of the breathless patient
Stand-alone study days for healthcare professionals, organised by Pulmonary Hypertension Association UK (PHA UK).
‘General Management of the Breathless Patient’, primarily aimed at healthcare professionals in primary or secondary care medicine, aims to provide attendees with an improved understanding of PAH and the issues patients face in day-to-day life.
On completion of the course, attendees will be able to recognise the signs and symptoms of PAH, have greater knowledge of treatments and side-effects and feel more confident in supporting pulmonary hypertension (PH) patients and their families.
The one-day programme, delivered in small focussed sessions, will cover a variety of topics including:
> The heart and lungs
> Pathology of PH and disease progression
> The breathless patient
> Epidemiology of PH
> Forms of PH and clinical classification
> WHO functional classification of PH
> Associated conditions
> Basics of the benefit system
