Communication and education for patients and caregivers needs to be tailored to patients’ individualized situations, and care must be more patient-centered. In order to address patient and caregiver needs for information, education, and support, clinicians must first understand these needs from the view of the patient. The Oxygen Therapy Virtual Patient Tour (VPT) will focus on the patient perspective. The VPT will contain videos of patients describing their experience living with chronic lung disease, including PAH and ILD. The videos will highlight the patient experience, including concerns about disease progression and symptom management, with a focus on gaps and needs related to oxygen therapy. The goal is for the clinician who is participating in the VPT to better consider the patient perspective when prescribing treatment and managing care.

Course Objectives

After completing this online course, you will be able to:

  1. Identify patient needs for information and education on treatment and care management.
  2. Consider the patient perspective when providing care management and coordination.
  3. Review patient concerns and barriers regarding use of oxygen treatment.

Supported in part by an independent medical education grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., an independent medical education grant from Genentech, Inc., an educational grant from Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc., and an educational grant from United Therapeutics Corporation.
