Applying Hypertension Guidelines in the Real World

  • Webinar: URL pending (map)

Care of hypertension has the greatest potential for lives saved of any intervention in medicine, yet only about half of Americans with hypertension have well-controlled blood pressures. This webinar will work through the 2017 ACC/AHA guideline toward evidence-based strategies to improve detection of elevated blood pressures, speed initiation of treatment, and propose team-based strategies for the long-term management of hypertension.

We're going to work by webinar to:

  • Define hypertension by the 2017 ACC/AHA guideline
  • Identify treatment cut-points for lifestyle modification and drug initiation
  • Identify patient barriers to medication adherence
  • Identify community resources for improved hypertension care
  • Propose team-based strategies for implementing and sustaining quality hypertension care

CME will be provided by the Medical Society of Sedgwick County
