[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Poster Presentation] Background: This study evaluates the effect of Home Blood Pressure Measurement (HBPM) on the adherence to hypertension treatment and the control of the disease. Objective: To evaluate the applicability of the HBPM protocol to the low-income Brazilian population based on the Brazilian Guidelines. Methods: A pilot-study based on a controlled, randomized clinical trial with 40 hypertensive patients was developed. Hypertensive men and women undergoing pharmacological treatment in a health unit for more than 6 months were included in the study. Pregnant women were excluded. Two groups were established: Gp1, the experimental group, which received instructions at home and had their blood pressure measurement verified and Gp2, the control group. Because the patients refused to take the HBP device home, a strategy (the presence of a nurse) was devised to make the HBPM protocol suitable to the population. Results: The pilot study showed the need for a nurse to supervise the procedure, a fact not considered in the protocol. Patients were advised based on the recommendations of the guidelines and then proceeded to measure their blood pressure (BP). It is known that the presence of an observer may lead to anxiety, which may alter BP values; however, this need arose from the fact that patients became extremely nervous, anxious and worried that the HBP device was in their homes. This also led to an increase in BP values. Conclusions: The pilot study showed us that the Brazilian HBPM protocol suggested by the II Guidelines for the use of HBPM needs to be adapted.
