159946 - GPCE - Effective diagnosis and monitoring of hypertension in primary care

  • : Online

Elevated blood pressure (BP) is the biggest single contributor to the global burden of disease and mortality. Its prevalence is expected to increase over the next decade and even those who have avoided hypertension by middle-age will have an over 90% likelihood of developing it later in life. This session covers the effective diagnosis and monitoring of hypertension in primary care, including home and office BP measurement, ambulatory BP monitoring, white-coat and masked hypertension, cuff use, and BP variability. 

Relevance to General Practice

The GPCE offers GP delegates over 50 topic choices over three days. The subjects span many therapeutic areas allowing GPs to self-select the topics of most interest to the individual and their practice.

Learning outcomes
  • Understand the prevalence and burden of hypertension in the community
