Multidisciplinary team-based care improves blood pressure (BP) control.
Hypertension is a common medical problem in BC. The Hypertension Clinic accepts referrals for all patients with hypertension. The Hypertension Clinic provides a best evidence approach and includes health behaviour modification. We work together with primary care practitioners, and specialists in cardiology, nephrology and neurology as multidisciplinary care is a proven strategy for improving hypertension control.
We also facilitate access to dieticians, pharmacists, exercise specialists and behavioural medicine specialists depending on your patient's needs. The Hypertension Clinic is also developing a strong research program to develop innovative health services strategies, access to state of the art technologies and an patient-oriented education program focused on e-learning.
