Hypertension Toolkit for Health Care Providers
Most of the time there are no symptoms, but untreated, high blood pressure damages arteries and vital organs throughout the body. That's why it is often called the "silent killer."
Monitoring blood pressure at home in addition to regular monitoring in a healthcare provider's office can help control blood pressure. To help you and your patients manage high blood pressure, the National Million Hearts Initiative has provided a Hypertension Toolkit. The Million Hearts® Blood Pressure Toolkit was designed to be used with patients to help address high blood pressure in your clinics and communities.
The toolkit includes:
- Messages for Consumers
- Messages for Health Care Professionals
- Community Guide Overview: Team-Based Care Can Improve Blood Pressure Control
- Consumers Fact Sheet
- My Blood Pressure Wallet Card
- Spanish language toolkit including materials
