In this course we provide a review of how to take blood pressure; assessment guides for adults and children; practice drills for the assessment of hypertension in children; and a series of case studies on hypertension and hypotension blood pressure.

Improve your blood pressure measurement skills with the new Achieving Accuracy: BP Measurement e-Learning module co-developed by the American Heart Association and the American Medical Association.

High-quality patient care is the top priority for healthcare professionals (HCPs), and re-training is vital to improving accuracy in blood pressure (BP) measurement. High BP is a leading risk factor for heart attacks and strokes. Identifying and treating High BP is key to improving patients’ cardiovascular health.

Guidelines recommend all HCPs should periodically re-train on BP measurement techniques to ensure you consistently measure BP accurately every time.

This course:
• Reinforces your knowledge on guideline recommended BP measurement techniques
• Teaches 5 essential steps to accurately measure and record BP using a manual, semi-automated, or automated device
• Boosts competency and confidence in BP measurement readings across the care team
