Re-training is an important aspect of ensuring health care professionals measure blood pressure (BP) accurately and consistently every time. Guidelines recommend healthcare professionals periodically re-train on BP measurement techniques, as high BP is a leading risk factor for heart attacks and strokes.
To address gaps and improve patient care, the AHA and the American Medical Association have collaborated to develop a new eLearning competency training module focused on ensuring that every health care professional measures BP accurately and consistently every time.
