- Describe the various guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension
- Identify the importance of lifestyle factors in managing and controlling hypertension
- Define the first, second, and subsequent line treatment options for patients with hypertension
This lecture is designed to provide interactive educational activities that discuss complicated case scenarios that have been shown to improve participant application of evidence based medicine for patients with hypertension. Providing a format for adult learning that includes lectures, case-based studies, an interactive question and answer session, collaborative sharing of patient care issues, and networking with other healthcare professionals has shown to improve participant knowledge and competency.
