Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

Arkansas Blood Pressure Measurement Quality Improvement Program 

The Arkansas Department of Health’s Blood Pressure Measurement Quality Improvement program was developed in June 2013 and updated in 2016 to bring health providers up-to-date on the latest standards of blood pressure measurement, protocols and equipment, to improve the accuracy and reliability of blood pressure readings and to empower providers to lower patient risk from uncontrolled high blood pressure.  This compilation of high blood pressure resources for providers, patients and the community includes clinical guidelines, training reference and educational materials.
