Fundamentals for Implementing a Hypertension Program in Resource-Constrained Settings

ISH-supported Online Course aims to help program managers and implementers in designing, planning, and implementing a hypertension control program.

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in collaboration with other organisations including the International Society of Hypertension (ISH), have designed an online course, “Fundamentals for Implementing a Hypertension Program in Resource-Constrained Settings”! This online course aims to help program managers and implementers in designing, planning, and implementing a hypertension control program. We know that each setting is unique, and every factor involved in implementing this type of program cannot be addressed in one course. However, we believe this course provides the basic knowledge necessary for successful program implementation and includes useful tips relevant to different settings.

 

Although the main target audience is program managers and implementers, the information provided here will certainly be relevant to other types of personnel like physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and community-health workers.  

You can take all or part of this course according to your need, but all Modules share the following features:

  • Concise and easy descriptions
  • Interactive learning experiences
  • Real-word examples
  • Evidence-based information
  • Downloadable practical materials
  • “Dig Deeper” sections for learners who would like to know more

 

We hope this course will help you implement and manage a successful hypertension program.  The course can be found at: https://globalhypertensionathopkins.org/
