ACPM is excited to present the next webinar in the Learning Collaborative to Address Hypertension series. In this one-hour session, you will learn how to efficiently and effectively develop an improvement journey portfolio designed for busy front-line improvement teams. The program will feature an unfolding case study in hypertension and interactive exercises for practice with measurement and analysis techniques that you can use in your improvement work.

The goal of the Learning Collaborative is to explore strategies for clinics and communities to prevent high blood pressure among African American adults.  The Collaborative is a forum for sharing promising practices, innovative ideas and lessons learned in four areas: 

  • Screening, testing, and referral of individuals with or at risk for hypertension
  • Engage this specific patient population in lifestyle education and self-measured blood pressure monitoring (SMBP)
  • Addressing social needs and determinants of health that are barriers to controlling blood pressure
  • Using data to track, report, and improve outcomes

Participants can anticipate leaving collaborative sessions with new ideas to improve their practice and patient outcomes. Through the online repository of slides and handouts, we’ll create a record of successful strategies with real-world track records that are available to others engaged in hypertension management and prevention.
