Abstract:

This best practice guideline focuses on assisting nurses working in diverse practice settings in the management of hypertension. This work is being conducted to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario’s High Blood Pressure AIM (Areas of Investment in Mission) initiative, which was launched in September 2004, and is comprised of two major streams:

1. Improving the management of high blood pressure by doctors, nurses and pharmacists. Working with several key partners, including the Ontario College of Family Physicians, the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario, and the Ontario Pharmacists’ Association, the plan creates new educational opportunities that are designed to enhance physician, pharmacist, and nursing approaches to high blood pressure detection, intervention, and follow up measures.

2. Research into: a. the social determinants of hypertension (non-traditional risk factors and conditions that are linked to high blood pressure, such as socioeconomic status or stressful life environments); and b. the role of systolic blood pressure level (upper number) in high blood pressure. The HBP AIM plan includes a significant investment in a province-wide research competition to better understand this emerging area.
