MODELLING OF CLINIC AND AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE ON CARDIOVASULAR RISK AND OUTCOMES

Grant number: 1049610 | Funding period: 2013 - 2015

Abstract

Whilst ambulatory blood pressure monitoring data has been shown to be a good predictor of cardiovascular events, there remains controversy as to its utility in clinical practice. This project will use data from existing population and clinical cohort studies to examine the role of ambulatory blood pressure in risk assessment and hypertension management in Australia and around the globe. The findings are likely to have a major impact on clinical guidelines for hypertension management.
