Survey of Patients with Resistant Hypertension
Curtin University in collaboration with The George Institute
Rationale: High blood pressure is associated with elevated risk of vascular disease and resistant hypertension. There is substantial uncertainty about the prevalence of resistant hypertension because of challenges associated with blood pressure measurement and the exclusion of secondary causes. This results in significant uncertainty about the need for new therapeutic interventions and the capacity to identify patient populations upon which novel interventions can be evaluated.
Design: Non interventional. Retrospective survey of patient consultations and a review of medical records done at clinical centres that specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of resistant hypertension.
The survey was successfully completed in 2017. Final study report prepared 17 April 2018
