Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of hypertension (HTN), compare clinic versus home visit blood pressure (BP) control, and examine the feasibility of home BP monitoring in a vulnerable adult population. Significance: HTN control continues to be an unmet health maintenance challenge across America. This project used a community lay worker (CLW) to guide individuals in a home BP monitoring program for HTN control. Results: Individuals who were educated in monitoring BP at home significantly reduced their systolic BP. Participants validated that this method was effective in meeting their needs for BP control.
