Published: 23 November, 2018 | Volume 2 - Issue 1 | Pages: 067-078

Two major challenges face the practicing physicians and medical community regarding the management of hypertension. First is accurate diagnosis and finding who is the truly hypertensive patient in need of life-long treatment. Second is to improve blood pressure control through addressing hypertension risk factors, adherence to treatment and frequent monitoring.

- Current Challenges in Management

o Accurate diagnosis of hypertension

o Improving blood pressure control

- What Do We Need For The Future?
