Medical research can be a slow and incremental process, especially when finding new ways to diagnose and treat the various causes of pulmonary hypertension (PH). Despite the millions of dollars spent yearly on this research, resources are limited.
Recently, researchers used a well-established method to engage the Canadian PH community and identify a list of research questions that are most important to them to help inform the research agenda.
