The Million Hearts® Toolbox
for Hypertension Control & Beyond


Because it is uncontrolled among almost 50% of hypertensive patients, high blood pressure continues to be a national issue. What is your organization doing to improve blood pressure control? Are you not sure or overwhelmed deciding where to begin or what to add next?
 
During this webinar, evidence-based tools and resources for hypertension control including a comprehensive quality improvement change package, standardized treatment protocols, and self-measured blood pressure monitoring will be highlighted. Related cardiovascular disease prevention tools will be included.
