Preparing for the growing care needs of the future

Pulmonary Hypertension is a disease that has largely fallen through the cracks of the major specialities in both Australia and New Zealand. Although a relatively rare disease, statistics reveal an increase in those presenting with Pulmonary Hypertension including its rarest form, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).

Over the past 6 years, centres of ‘excellence’ have been established to deal with growing numbers of patients with PH in Australia and New Zealand. Although these centres have the ability to access the tests mandated by regulatory bodies, they do not always have the resources, personnel, time or infrastructure to deliver optimal service to patients with Pulmonary Hypertension.

It is in this environment the Pulmonary Hypertension Society of ANZ operates with a commitment to supporting sustainable models of care for patients in the future.

Achieving Key Steps in 2013

Achieving Key Steps in 2014

Continue to execute role out and analysis of PHSANZ PHT registry. The registry will be the biggest per capita registry in the world. We  would hope this registry will promote future research and provide vital information for governments in allocating resources for improved patient outcomes.

Continue with our “Breathlessness is not OK” campaign. 2013 bring exciting opportunities in setting up Australia’s first “virtual” on line Breathlessness clinic using telehealth.

2013 annual scientific meeting is planned for October 11th in Melbourne and will focus on Australian and New Zealand outcomes promoting sustainable models of care. Over the last two years we have seen more than 35 research projects published and continue to promote independent research dissemination during this important ANZ meeting.
    
We continue to collaborate with key cardiology and thoracic societies and will hold several joint symposiums with both the CSANZ and TSANZ in 2013 and 2014.
