    Team-Based Approaches to Controlling Hypertension


 NACDD and the CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention hosted a fireside chat and follow-up virtual roundtables to address team-based approaches to controlling hypertension. Moderated by the Million Hearts Executive Director, Janet Wright, this chat focused on the pharmacist-related work that Connecticut has been involved with. During the peer-to-peer virtual roundtables, several states shared their experience in promoting team-based care, including Alaska, Iowa, Nebraska, Nevada, Utah, Vermont, Wisconsin, Washington, and Colorado.  


 Undiagnosed Hypertension

 To support the Million Hearts focus of identifying people with undiagnosed – and therefore untreated – hypertension,
 NACDD and the CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention launched a series of learning opportunities
 in February 2016, including a fireside chat held at CDC and live streamed, two virtual roundtables to allow grantees
 to discuss in more detail their work related to undiagnosed hypertension, and the development of success stories
 featuring strategies that state health departments have implemented. A virtual roundtable summary document
 provides highlights from the fireside chat and the roundtables and case studies from Colorado, Maine,
 Massachusetts, Montana, Texas and Wisconsin. The issue brief highlights lessons learned and success stories
 shared by New York, Florida, and Montana about their work related to undiagnosed hypertension.
