The 10-minute consultation: hypertension

Advisory board: MJ Brown G De Backer M Kirby F Mir R Sanchez


Hypertension is a major, but modifiable, risk factor for stroke, cardiovascular (CV) disease and other diseases (eg, renal disease and aortic aneurysm). It is important to assess the patient's risk before CV disease develops, and monitoring for persistently raised blood pressure is one aspect of CV risk assessment. Accurate diagnosis of the clinical signs and symptoms that can potentially cause CV disease are a key competency for GPs, and management of hypertension is, therefore, an essential part of health promotion by GPs.

The 10-minute consultation: hypertension will provide a holistic approach to the assessment and management of hypertension, outlining the principles for good technique in measuring blood pressure and stressing the importance of ongoing patient review and recall to ensure delivery of high-quality, evidence-based treatment.
