This study is an overview of the best practice guideline Nursing Management of Hypertension, developed in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario (HSFO) and the Registered Nurses? Association of Ontario.  This evidence-based resource is one of the key elements of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario High Blood Pressure Strategy?s Provider Management Initiative. The focus of this initiative is to improve the management of high blood pressure by primary care doctors, nurses and pharmacists.  The development of this evidence-based guideline on the management of high blood pressure by nurses was identified as an appropriate strategy to facilitate and strengthen nursing interventions in hypertension management. This document, endorsed by the Canadian Hypertension Education Program, highlights a key nursing role in detection, assessment and development of a treatment plan for individuals with hypertension.  Lifestyle risk factors contributing to hypertension are identified and recommendations about key assessment and management strategies are included.  Pharmacological treatment is outlined to serve as direction for practice, and to assist in the education of the client and family.  This guideline also provides a selection of theoretical frameworks that nurses can use to facilitate behaviour change and to promote adherence in clients with hypertension. This session will highlight the development process, key practice recommendations and the evidence that supports them.
