Despite therapeutic advances, the prognosis of pulmonary hypertension remains poor which likely reflects in part delayed detection of the disease and scarcity of disease modifying therapies currently available. The former is important especially amongst health care providers given the myriad of conditions that can result in pulmonary hypertension, including chronic liver disease, left heart disease, and connective tissue disease. Early recognition of the pulmonary hypertension and recognizing the indication & limitations of current pulmonary artery hypertension-specific therapies are important to allows for prompt and appropriate treatment strategies. Knowledge on the peri-operative, acute, and chronic management strategies of patients with pulmonary hypertension are important for health care provider to understand the complexity of managing patients with pulmonary hypertension.

Progress in treatment with traditional small molecules and the rise of biologic therapy offers improved outcomes for rheumatic disease patients. With advances in efficacy comes increasing therapeutic complexity and the need to avoid harm.

We will also consider the needs of special populations such as underserved, pregnant, and peri-operative patients and the role of vaccination.
