Update in Pharmacotherapy for Hypertension Webcast – 1 CE

Activity Overview

In 2014, a much-anticipated update to the 2003 JNC guidelines for hypertensive management were released. The 2014 update was met with mixed responses in the medical community and was further complicated by the results of the SPRINT trial in 2015. To address areas of controversy, a multi-organization consensus guideline was released in 2017. After an 11 year period of consistency, the plethora of guidelines releases has resulted in confusion in the clinical community.

This activity will provide a clear overview of updated recommendations with a focus on drug therapy. It is relevant for new and experienced pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurses, and advanced practice providers.
