This study day will start with "why bother managing hypertension" and reviews the big-ger picture, but moves swiftly into the practical.
Starting with a very simple story of the patho physiology of hypertension. This story is then the basis for the management deci-sions made and enables the delegates to appreciate the reasons for drug choice, side effects and monitoring descriptions of how the drugs work are given in such a way that sharing these descriptions with patients is easier.
 
Diagnosis of hypertension is a bread and butter role of primary care, and so this is refreshed, because if we do it, we had better get it right!
Do you ever think I wish they would make their minds up about the targets? Well these targets and thresholds and will be explained using latest NICE guidance.
Where ever possible the real world, which means having about 13% of your whole practice population diagnosed as hypertensive, will be kept in mind, because this large section of your population require excellent clinical management and lifestyle advice. Lifestyle is key and this is highlighted but not dwelt on, as most health care professionals are not worried about lifestyle facts, more, how do you get people to make those healthy decisions? Well, for more in-depth information on helping people to make life style changes, the motivational interviewing study day shares techniques which are very useful for these situations. The hypertension study day will conclude with clinical cases to pull together the learning from the day.
