Are your hypertensive patients At Target?
Objectives This program is designed to:
- Determine levels of knowledge and attitudes towards Hypertension Canada Guidelines
- Measure the uptake of the Guidelines and attainment of blood pressure targets in primary care settings
- Provide evidence-based learning with a goal to improve guidelines adoption and adherence
The Hypertension Canada Guidelines are internationally cited and renowned for their evidence-based research and rigorous reviewing process, but their adoption in a busy family practice can be challenging. We aim to bridge the gap.
