Workgroup: Clinical Interventions to Reduce Hypertension DisparitiesDate
December 4, 2013
9:00 a.m. (ET) – 5:00 p.m. (ET)
The Addressing Disparities (AD) program worked with MillionHearts® to convene a multi-stakeholder workgroup to discuss clinical interventions to reduce hypertension disparities. The purpose of the workgroup was to help prepare the AD program for developing a funding announcement to conduct comparative effectiveness research focusing on clinical interventions to reduce disparities in care and improve outcomes among patients with hypertension.
We welcomed your feedback on the following priority topics that were discussed at the Clinical Interventions to Address Hypertension Disparities Workgroup.
- Compare the effectiveness and impact of using different methods for tracking data from home blood pressure monitoring.
- Compare the effectiveness of different models for supporting patient self-management to facilitate long-term blood pressure management.
- Compare the effectiveness of different compositions of care teams for managing hypertension.
- Compare the effectiveness of diuretics.
We are interested in your perspective on the following:
- What are comparative research questions (e.g., Compare the effectiveness of X to Y in addressing Z among populations likely to experience disparities) within these priority topics that PCORI should explore? Example: Compare the effectiveness of telecounseling or telecounseling plus in-person classes in reducing blood pressure among minority and rural populations with hypertension.
- Which topic(s) is/are most important and/or timely for addressing hypertension disparities?
- Which topic(s) has/have the potential to achieve high impact results on a limited (~3 year) timeline?
- Other general comments.
