The AHA is developing a high blood pressure continuing education course targeted specifically for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. High blood pressure is a significant concern for a large proportion of the adult population and much of it goes untreated. Nurse practitioners and physician assistants play a major role in managing hypertension in professional office settings, community settings and in convenient forums such as retail clinics. More and more healthcare is moving out into the community and this training will provide updated treatment guidelines, support the diverse needs of our patients and assist with ongoing monitoring, which is critical for good blood pressure management.
