PHA Offers Tools to Assist Physicians in Helping Patients
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association’s comprehensive Empowered Patient Toolkit can make visits with your patients more productive. When
they track their medical history, medications and medical visits, and record their symptoms and questions for you between visits, you will both
get the most out of the time you spend together. Refer them to www.PHAssociation.org/OnlineToolkit.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association wants to help you help patients. We offer three distinct packets: for patients (Envelope of Hope),
caregivers (Resources for Family & Friends) and family members of children with PH (Resources for Family & Friends: Pediatric). Clinicians may
Request referral postcards from the Free Materials section of PHA’s Online Store, www.PHAssociation.org/store/freeform.aspor by emailing EoH@PHAssociation.org.
