This interactive episode designed for family physicians will analyze the results of the SPRINT trial and how they affect the management of hypertension, including setting new blood pressure targets for high-risk patients. Through discussion of clinical data and patient cases, participants will learn which patients are affected by the results of the SPRINT trial and which are not, and how to achieve optimal blood pressure in most patients through both lifestyle and pharmacological interventions. Comments and questions from the audience are strongly encouraged and will be addressed throughout the presentation.
This episode is part of a live CME web series developed for Canadian family physicians, running from March 14 to May 30, 2017. Interested in the rest of the series? Visit www.imedicus.ca.
