This one-hour webinar trains physicians, and clinical teams on the “Measure Accurately” component of the M.A.P. Framework. M.A.P. stands for Measure Accurately, Act Rapidly, and Partner with Patients, Families and Communities. Blood pressure variability, poor blood pressure measurement technique and white-coat effect contribute to uncertainty about what a patient’s true blood pressure is. This uncertainty about the reliability of a patient’s blood pressure reading is a leading cause of clinicians failing to act to manage high blood pressure (therapeutic inertia).
