This webinar marks the sixth installment in a series dedicated to delving into the groundbreaking innovations outlined in the 2022 ESC/ERS clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary hypertension. One particularly notable advancement is the inclusion of a new section focusing on ‘Patient Associations and Patient Empowerment.‘ Additionally, the guidelines now recommend that pulmonary hypertension centers establish collaborative partnerships with patient associations. The program for this series was established in close collaboration with Prof. Marc Humbert, Director of the French National Reference Center for Pulmonary Hypertension, and a global authority in the field.
