Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Barriers to blood pressure control exist at the patient, physician, and system levels. We review the current evidence for interventions that target patient- and physician-related barriers, such as patient education, home blood pressure monitoring, and computerized decisionsupport systems for physicians, and we emphasize the need for more studies that address the effectiveness of these interventions in African American patients.
