Over the last decade, hypertension has risen to the number one factor in the global burden of disease and its management can be challenging specially in patients with comorbidities. Despite  increased awareness and improved treatment, the prevalence of hypertension is rising and controlled rates are stagnant.

This joint educational program reviews the latest clinical guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, raising important questions about hypertension diagnosis, treatment and best practices. It addresses challenges from the viewpoints of Internal Medicine, Nephrology and Cardiology.

Topics include:

  • Approaches to Prevention, Detection, Evaluation and Management of High Blood Pressure
  • Hypertension Management in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease & Cardiac Disease
  • Non-Adherence to Medication

This course is designed for all healthcare professionals specializing in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Nephrology.


This educational activity is supported by an independent medical educational grant from the Delaware Valley Chapter of the American Society of Hypertension and Novartis.
