ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION / STATEMENT OF NEED:
The syndrome of right heart failure is poorly understood and defined. Clinicians often fail to diagnose early stages of the disease and allow the manifestations to progress to severe disability. There is a pressing need to define, understand, and inculcate awareness about this disease in clinicians. Similarly, understanding right heart dysfunction requires focused investigations and research study, best brought forth by a multidisciplinary collaboration. This program is intended for clinical and research professionals who are involved in the care of patients with, and the study of, right heart disease, congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, and associated disorders.
The content of this internet enduring material activity was originally presented as part of a live event. It is divided into three different learning activities, each with multiple videos. For each of the three activities, learners must view all videos in their entirety and complete a post-activity assessment and evaluation before they are eligible for continuing credit.
This program has been designed for physicians, pharmacists, hospitalists, surgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied healthcare professionals in the fields of cardiology, pulmonology, critical care medicine, emergency medicine, rheumatology, internal medicine, and vascular medicine.
By the end of the session the participant will be able to:
- Describe the unique structure and function of the right ventricle (RV) with a focus on anatomical and embryological differences between the RV and LV
- Discuss the importance of RV and pulmonary arterial coupling and its role in RV function and RV failure
- Summarize the emerging role of advanced imaging in assessing RV function
- Evaluate the current data regarding myocardial metabolism and RV function
- Given a patient case, formulate a management approach that takes into account RV structure, function, and maladaptation
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of ScientiaCME and NATF. ScientiaCME is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Physicians: ScientiaCME designates these internet enduring material activities for a maximum of 13 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Nurse Practitioners (NPs): The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ from organizations accredited by the ACCME. ScientiaCME will provide NPs who successfully complete each activity with a certificate of participation indicating that the activity was designated for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.
Physician Assistants: The American Academy of Physician Assistants accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ from organizations accredited by the ACCME.
Pharmacists: ScientiaCME is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. ScientiaCME designates the following CTEPH modules for a maximum of 13 contact hour(s) (1.30 CEUs). Proof of participation will be posted to your NABP CPE profile within 4 to 6 weeks to participants who have successfully completed the post-test. Participants must participate in the entire group of presentations and complete the course evaluation to receive continuing pharmacy education credit. The modules are listed as follows:
- 5th Right Heart Symposium, Part 1: 0574-9999-22-013-H01-P: 2.25 contact hours (0.225 CEUs)
- 5th Right Heart Symposium, Part 2: 0574-9999-22-014-H01-P: 3.25 contact hours (0.325 CEUs)
- 5th Right Heart Symposium, Part 3: 0574-9999-22-015-H01-P: 3.75 contact hours (0.375 CEUs)
- 5th Right Heart Symposium, Part 4: 0574-9999-22-016-H01-P: 3.75 contact hours (0.375 CEUs)
This is an Knowledge (K)-type activity.
You must enter your NABP # and birth date correctly so that proof of participation can be posted to your NABP CPE profile. It is the learner’s responsibility to provide this information completely and accurately at the completion of the activity. Without providing it, the learner will NOT receive CPE credit for this activity.
The CPE statements of credit contain information provided to NABP from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) via CPE Monitor®. ACPE policy states paper and/or electronic statements of credit may no longer be distributed directly to learners as proof of ACPE credit. The official record of credit may be located in the learner’s e-profile in CPE Monitor®
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 13 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
Supported by educational grants from Acceleron, Actelion Pharmaceuticals US, Inc., a Janssen Pharmaceutical Company of Johnson & Johnson, and United Therapeutics. This internet enduring material activity is part of a series of activities.
Participation in these activities is free.
