Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) has a considerable impact with high rates of morbidity, hospitalization and mortality. In addition, health care costs and resource utilization for PAH patients and their family caregivers are significant. Vulnerable points in transitions of care for patients include: hospital admission, internal transfers, and discharge to other care settings. This session will focus on the critical issues around transitions of care and an emphasis on the role of the interprofessional team and the need for shared accountability to ensure smooth transitions and reduce hospital readmissions.
1) Identify the scope of the problem in PAH including the barriers to effective transitions of care
2) Review considerations in PAH transitions of care
3) Assess medication reconciliation and management for PAH patients
4) Discuss the importance for advanced care planning with the PAH population
