Course Description

According to a recent health ministry survey, one in eight adults in India above the age of 30 has hypertension. Some studies from India have reported even higher rates, ranging between 25 to 33% for prevalence of hypertension. However, only half of these subjects are aware of their hypertension status, and only one-fourth of treated patients had their BP under control. Hypertension is directly responsible for 57% of all stroke deaths and 24% of all coronary heart disease in India and adversely impacts public health and health expenditure in India. It is also ranked as fourth among the risk factors that drive most deaths and disabilities in India.

The Certificate in Hypertension Management is a web-based course that aims to provide the students with specialized knowledge required to manage hypertension cases. It covers a wide range of topics from pathophysiology to diagnosis and management. The course content has been developed from the latest hypertension management guidelines. The course videos have experts in the field of hypertension sharing their knowledge and experience of managing hypertension. The objective of this course is to enable general practitioners to provide, high quality evidence-based treatment with improved outcomes in hypertension. This course is certified by Medvarsity.
