MetaStar has been developing elearning modules to help providers educate themselves or their patients.  Our first elearning module, regarding blood pressure readings, became available in October 2017.

Taking an Accurate Blood Pressure Reading – Outpatient Adults

Purpose
To provide an overview of proper blood pressure (BP) measurement technique for ambulatory patients using evidence-based research. As guidelines may change over time, this module does not address diagnosis or treatment of hypertension or other conditions. Ideally, this module is used as part of a course that includes a skills-based competency check with an experienced trainer. It also serves as a valuable refresher course training for already experienced professionals.

Intended Audience
Healthcare professionals who take BP measurements for adult (18 years and older) patients in an ambulatory or community based setting

Format
The content of this 35 minute module is divided into five sections, with a sixth section devoted to test questions. Students may choose to view sections of the module as time permits — it is not necessary to complete the module in one sitting.
