Self-measured blood pressure (SMBP), when combined with clinical support, can help enhance the quality and accessibility of care for people with high blood pressure (BP) and improve BP control. While a critical component of managing patients with hypertension, many health care schools do not incorporate SMBP training into current curricula. This module can help students understand how to properly partner with patients to measure BP – at home and in the office – driving improved quality of care for patients with hypertension, both during training and beyond.
