Target: BP Webinar – The Importance of Treating Your Patients’ High Blood Pressure

08/23/18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

This one-hour live webinar will train physicians and clinical teams on the “Act Rapidly” component of the M.A.P. Framework. M.A.P. stands for Measure Accurately, Act Rapidly, and Partner with Patients, Families and Communities. Acting rapidly to manage high blood pressure is a key component to Target: BP’s ability to improve blood pressure control. This is accomplished by using a combination of: an evidence-based treatment protocol, having patients return frequently for follow-up until their blood pressure is controlled, single-pill combination therapy and incorporating feedback metrics whenever possible to drive improvement for the care of patients.

Learning Objectives

  • List clinician and patient factors that contribute to therapeutic inertia
  • Understand the benefits of using a standardized treatment protocol for people with high blood pressure
  • Review the benefits of using single-pill combination anti-hypertensive therapy
  • Understand why quality improvement programs that incorporate feedback metrics provide data that can drive improvement in blood pressure control
