High blood pressure is one of many chronic conditions that family physicians have to address to help their patients live better lives. Making an impact may feel slow and small but in the overall health of your patients, it means the world.
On Thursday, September 29, from 12:15-1:00 p.m., Ohio Academy of Family Physicians members and their practice team will have an opportunity to hear three family physicians, from three very different practice settings, tell their stories about how they have improved hypertension control rates – one patient at a time. Register today for OAFP’s Best Practices of Hypertension Management in Family Medicine Webinar!
We know it’s challenging to persuade a busy mom that blood pressure control is important and even though her kids are going back to school soon, she needs to return in a few weeks to make sure things are better with the new medication. As family physicians, you have first-hand knowledge of your patients health concerns, their work-life stressors, and you celebrate their accomplishments alongside them. Participate in the webinar and learn how your peers in the primary care trenches are impacting their communities through hypertension management success.
This webinar is FREE of charge to OAFP members and their practice teams, will offer continuing medical education (CME) credits, and will be archived on the OAFP website for one year. In addition, the first 25 pre-registered webinar participants to complete and return the program evaluation will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.
By participating in this webinar, physicians and their teams will understand:
- The importance of engaging a practice improvement strategy to impact population health
- Examples of how family medicine practices in different settings improved their care for patients diagnosed with hypertension
- How teams that work together toward a common goal can improve the quality of care provided to their patients
- What practices can do now to positively impact their practice in the future.
