Educational Needs Assessment

Hypertension, often referred to as high blood pressure, is the most common condition seen in primary care and leads to myocardial infarction, stroke, renal failure, and death if not detected early and treated appropriately.  Hypertension affects 1 billion people worldwide and is the number one reason listed for office visits. The Eighth Joint National Committee (JNC8) focused on a rigorous, evidence-based approach to recommend treatment thresholds, goals, and medications in the management of hypertension in adults.  The home study will provide a detailed review of hypertension and evidence based recommendations for the management of high blood pressure.
