Problem: Approximately 55-60 million Americans have hypertension that requires monitoring and/or drug therapy. Hypertension is more prevalent in African Americans than in Whites or Hispanics, and associated morbidity and mortality remain significantly higher in African Americans. The purpose of the study is to determine the effectiveness of an intensive self-monitoring and telephone follow-up intervention to increase blood pressure control in uninsured women, who are African American and have great difficulty in controlling their blood pressure. Conceptual Model: The study design is based on assessing variables related to self-monitoring and improvement of self-confidence in managing tasks associated with blood pressure management. Self-efficacy theory provides a useful model. Subjects will be recruited from a nurse-managed clinic that provides primary care to uninsured women. African American women diagnosed with hypertension, willing to engage in self-monitoring behaviors and be contacted by telephone for 12 weeks, are eligible for inclusion in the study. They will be recruited at a regularly scheduled clinic visit. Methods: An intervention study, designed to add self-monitoring (blood pressure and pill tracking) and intensive telephone follow-up, in conjunction with the regular hypertension management prescribed by their nurse practitioner is planned to determine whether a behavioral intervention will result in better blood pressure control. A longitudinal experimental, within-subjects design will be used. Measures of blood pressure and self-efficacy will be obtained once prior to the intervention and twice post-intervention. A total of 35 subjects are needed to receive the treatment; the same 35 subjects will serve as their own controls. Anticipated data analysis includes use descriptive statistics, repeated measures ANOVA to compare the changes in blood pressure and self-efficacy and repeated measures ANCOVA to determine examine the effect of self-efficacy on blood pressure control. Additional analyses are planned for the weekly contacts. Data collection is ongoing. [Poster Presentation]
