As the most consistent point of contact for PH patients, nurses are integral in guiding patients through the disease process, explaining medical therapies and understanding the psychological, emotional and social adjustments associated with PH and its management. this interactive session will explore how nurses can translate the information they have about the patient experience into advocacy by active membership in the interdisciplinary PAH team. We will consider certification in our practice arena as an asset to influence and explore the concept of practice boundaries.
