3rd Annual Hypertension Symposium - Virtual Meeting
As the global burden of hypertension - the leading cardiovascular risk factor - continues to rise, it remains sub-optimally controlled despite increased awareness. Management of hypertension can be challenging for healthcare providers, as inappropriate diet, inaccurate blood pressure monitoring technique and poor medication adherence are all underestimated contributing factors of uncontrolled hypertension. Identifying these barriers are important key factors for practical management strategies to achieve a sustained blood pressure control and patient’s well-being.
The 3rd Annual Hypertension Symposium: Salt, Pseudo-Resistance and Sound Decision-Making has been developed by the Divisions of Cardiology and Nephrology at Thomas Jefferson University. The symposium will address challenging situations in patients with Hypertension to include: Blood Pressure Measurement, Medication Non-adherence, Practical Strategies to Achieve Blood Pressure Targets, and Acute Hypertension: When to Send Your Patient to the Emergency Department. The program features a Keynote Address on: Salt and Hypertension: Why is There Still a Debate?
This course is designed for all healthcare professionals specializing in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Nephrology, Neurology, Endocrinology, Nutrition, Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Medicine.
