Hypertension Management Program
Program Details (Back to Programs)

The program is based on the guidelines of the Canadian Thoracic Society (CTS) and adapted for practice through provincial strategy of COR-Health

The Hypertension Canada Guidelines are adapted into educational materials for professionals and the patients.

Patients will be assessed by a Registered Nurse who collaborates with the Primary Care Provider.  The program addresses life style management including diet, exercise and medications. 

A 24 hour Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring program is available on referral from your Primary Care Provider. The process helps to diagnose hypertension and rule out “White Coat “syndrome.
