PH is a relatively rare disease and most physicians have little or no experience with its diagnosis and treatment. For this reason, referral to a centre specialized in the treatment of PH is encouraged in order to confirm diagnosis and ensure that patients receive the best care. Please note that some provinces require patients to be followed by a specialist in order to receive coverage for PH-specific medications.
 
Please note that PHA Canada does not have a formal process for accrediting PH centres. The information provided on this website is for informational purposes only.
