Implementing a shared-care approach to improve the management of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension

Author and Disclosure Information

ABSTRACT

Patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) may present to internists, rheumatologists, cardiologists, or pulmonologists. This breadth of clinicians who encounter PAH patients, together with the complicated nature of PAH as a disease entity, argues for a shared-care approach to the management of these patients. This review describes the contributions of several key specialties to PAH management and outlines the collaborative PAH management model in place at our institution.
