What interventions work best in helping patients with hypertension to better manage their blood pressure control at home?
I have worked with renal patients for several years. Many of the patients that had chronic kidney disease (CKD) also had hypertension.
Within a multidisciplinary team, we would educate and monitor patients with hypertension to help obtain a more optimal range of control.
Doing this can help slow the progression of their CKD.
Many patients did not monitor their blood pressure outside of clinic for a variety of reasons.
I would like to explore the evidence on this subject firsthand to better support this patient population.
