Essential Perspectives: Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension - Applying Emerging Trial Data to Clinical Practice

Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a complex and progressively debilitating syndrome associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Although recent decades have witnessed the advent of multiple therapeutic options and improved survival, outcomes remain suboptimal. Current treatment options are frequently limited by toxicity, inconsistent efficacy, and burdensome delivery methods such as continuous intravenous and subcutaneous infusions. Emerging oral therapies may provide new options for the long-term management of this chronic disease. This CME initiative is designed to provide clinicians treating patients with PAH contemporary information on new treatment options.

A Performance Improvement Approach to Glycemic Control in the Hospital

This initiative enabled 10 hospitals that relied on sliding scale insulin with the development and implementation of better strategies for achieving glycemic control in the hospital through a structured quality improvement activity. The Annenberg Center assembled a group of experienced clinical experts who led efforts to improve glycemic control within their own institutions and have served as mentors to those leading improvements in these organizations. This faculty group includes endocrinologists, hospitalists, and nurses specializing in inpatient diabetes care. Two experts did onsite visits with each hospital from Oct. 18, 2010 through April 4, 2011. Organizational progress was recorded during 3 webinars that took place through March, 2012. Since the program has concluded, the faculty and Annenberg Center staff is preparing an article for submission to the peer-reviewed literature on the results of this pilot intervention.
