This module uses the NICE Hypertension guidelines to offer solutions to common dilemmas encountered in primary care, including:

  • Using the right equipment to take accurate blood pressure readings
  • The updated step approach to antihypertensive drug treatment
  • Managing resistant hypertension
  • Improving adherence to medications

In this module, you will watch Dr Terry McCormack deliver a presentation covering the above topics. This video was recorded at a Pulse clinical seminar which took place in September 2012.

The powerpoint slides will cycle through automatically as the video plays, but if you are interested in a particular aspect of the presentation, use the arrow buttons at the bottom of the screen to navigate through the slides, simply click on the slide you are interested in and you will be taken to the relevant part of the video.

After viewing the video, you will complete a multiple-choice assessment to test the knowledge you have gained. You will then have the opportunity to record your personal learning points and claim your CPD credits, which will be recorded on a certificate stored automatically in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
