This interactive episode designed for family physicians will focus on treatment-resistant hypertension, as defined by blood pressure levels above target despite treatment with three optimally dosed drugs of different classes (or BP controlled with four agents). Through a review of clinical data and case-based discussions, participants will consider prevalence, risk factors, possible causes and appropriate individualized therapies, including setting correct targets and pharmacological combinations for patients with treatment-resistant hypertension. 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.
