  • Overview

    When patients present with resistant hypertension, clinicians aim to stabilize blood pressure by adding or replacing traditional agents, then hope that noncompliance and reduced adherence won’t further complicate management. Fortunately, new and effective pharmacologic treatments, device therapies and multidisciplinary team approaches are rapidly changing outcomes. This CE-certified symposium will assess diagnostic delay consequences, traditional treatment shortfalls, dual endothelin-receptor antagonists and why guidelines don’t keep pace with real-world clinical practice.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including cardiologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and pharmacists, involved in the management of patients with resistant hypertension.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Identify appropriate patients with a diagnosis of resistant hypertension in the presence of various comorbidities and inequities in healthcare
    • Apply the latest evidence-based approaches to prevent diagnostic delays and maximize management prognostic outcomes for resistant hypertension
    • Demonstrate the role of current guidelines and their application to current clinical practice patterns in addressing the management of resistant hypertension
    • Understand emerging data of classes and mechanisms of drugs, with a focus on adherence, combinations, and compliance of pharmacological treatments in controlling resistant hypertension

  • Accreditation Statement

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and TotalCME, Inc. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.25 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
