Hypertension and health behaviours: Understanding pharmacy’s role

Hypertension is a complex, yet manageable condition. While an initial diagnosis of high blood pressure must be made by a doctor, there is significant scope for pharmacy teams to help patients manage the condition once it has been diagnosed.

This module explores ways you can help hypertension patients lead healthier lives.
