17 May 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free Webinar: World Hypertension Day – Measure your blood pressure accurately, control it, live longer!
We invite you to join the British and Irish Hypertension Society to celebrate World Hypertension Day at their FREE educational webinar taking place on Wednesday 17th May 2023 at 6:30pm – 8pm (BST).

Highlights include:
1. Welcome from our BIHS President, Professor Terry McCormack who notes that “The most successful country in tackling blood pressure is currently Canada and one of the reasons is their involvement of community pharmacists in this endeavour”.
2. Update on the global burden of high blood pressure from Professor Neil Poulter, Chief Investigator of May Measurement Month
3. Sharing the latest research suggesting that in the UK half a million fewer individuals than expected were initiated on antihypertensive medications during the first year of the COVID pandemic. Finding and accurately measuring the blood pressure of these individuals is key to preventing a future excess of cardiovascular events.
4. Lively and interactive discussion with our panel of Hypertension Specialists from the fields of Pharmacy, Medicine and Nursing.
5. Inspiring everyone through education and debate that blood pressure screening, accurate measurement and management is an essential role that we are proud to prioritise
