e-learning | Hypertension in adults

This is an updated guideline from NICE on managing hypertension in adults published in Aug 2019.

So what is new?

The meat and bones of management is the same. There are a few small differences, which I’ll list below.

The biggest difference is that NICE encourage us to have much more of a discussion with patients about whether to start medication and what to start. Helpfully, they have provided some patient decision aids, which are really good.

"I started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
