An attempt to improve blood pressure control in the french population : Information and outcome awareness at the general practitioner level.
Treatment of raised blood pressure in the population : II and III : Objetives of high blood pressure treatment and strategies for the improvement of blood pressure control in the population. Paris, FRA, 1996/12/11.
To improve blood pressure (BP) control in general practice, 3122 general practitioners agreed to participate in a result awareness program.
A survey carried out 6 months after participating physicians had been informed of the outcome of treatments they had given showed that blood pressure control (cut-off point : BP<140/90 mm Hg) had not improved.
However, using less stringent criteria, a slight improvement in blood pressure control could be observed.
Although this improvement was marginal, results are sufficiently encouraging to warrant another study after a new awareness campaign among the medical population.
