A 90-minute session exploring hypertension best practice, and ‘ask the expert’ opportunity

There has never been a better time to update your CVD knowledge and know-how. Hypertension has been highlighted in the Core20PLUS5 approach as one the key clinical areas for accelerated improvement, and our 90-minute masterclass will explore how to effectively diagnose and support patients with hypertension. Whether you are in a new role and want to refine your blood pressure measuring technique, or you are a more experienced clinician who has questions about challenging cases, this CPD-accredited workshop is for you.

 

Increase your knowledge and know-how

 

Led by an experienced clinical specialist and facilitator, the Hypertension Masterclass will cover the following content:

  • How to spot hypertension – signs, symptoms, and risk factors
  • Practicalities of blood pressure measurement, and the importance of validated blood pressure monitors
  • Prevalence of hypertension: who does it affect, and what is the impact?
  • Tips for non-pharmacological management
  • What medications and when?

 

This session will highlight the relationship between health inequalities and effective hypertension case-finding and management, so you are encouraged to think about your local practice population as you listen. You will then have the opportunity to ask questions of our expert facilitator – please do come prepared with any specific questions or issues you would like to discuss.
