Event Description

This content on Hypertension is one module of a soon-to-be-released asynchronous series on the Advanced Topics in Hypertension. This curriculum was originally developed to teach internal medicine residents at Yale New Haven Hospital in response to findings that residents were confident and well-trained in basic hypertension topics but less confident in advanced topics in hypertension. For this live event, the team from Yale will discuss managing hypertensive urgency in the outpatient setting. Participants will be asked to complete a pre- and post survey.

Given the prevalence of hypertension in the United States, the content of this session is highly relevant to outpatient general internists. Plan now to join us on March 22, 2024 from 1:00 – 2:30pm ET.

Learning Objectives

  • State criteria for distinguishing between hypertensive urgency and hypertensive emergency
  • Outline initial triage and management plans for patients presenting in the outpatient setting with hypertensive urgency
  • Describe an initial assessment strategy and goals for ED patients with severe elevation of blood pressure
