Targets and self-management for the control of blood pressure in stroke and at risk groups (TASMIN-SR) : protocol for a randomised controlled trial

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Self-monitoring of hypertension with self-titration of antihypertensives (self-management) results in lower systolic blood pressure for at least one year. However, few people in high risk groups have been evaluated to date and previous work suggests a smaller effect size in these groups. This trial therefore aims to assess the added value of self-management in high risk groups over and above usual care.
