Evaluation of hypertension screening in the Hutterite population.
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of a hypertension screening program on Hutterites from Alberta, Canada who were found to have a diastolic blood pressure>90 mm Hg.
At approximately 16 months postscreening, 200 subjects completed a self-administered questionnaire requesting information about physician follow-up and pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapy.
Seventy-four percent of the subjects reported that they had their blood pressure measured at least twice since screening.
A third of the respondents reported changes in pharmacologic management.
