FREE Hypertension Information
January 27, 2009
The Alberta Hypertension Initiative is a new provincial project designed to provide health care professionals the latest Canadian Hypertension Education Program (CHEP) educational materials. To provide you the latest blood pressure information, we are launching an innovative Alberta program to provide hypertension management tools for you and your patients – FREE!
Currently there are over 500,000 adults in Alberta diagnosed with hypertension, while those who live to an average age have over 90% chance of developing it. Pharmacists play a pivotal role with patients in the detection, treatment and management of hypertension.
Visit the Alberta Hypertension Initiative link to order your peer-reviewed, evidence-based educational materials. Interested in educating patients or other health care professionals? Be sure to sign up for our Train the Trainer sessions!
