Community Health Workers Using Patient Stories to Support Hypertension Management

2016-08-23 12:23:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Community Health Workers (CHWs) using patient stories to support hypertension management is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the implementation of a CHW-delivered culturally appropriate storytelling intervention for english and spanish-speaking patients diagnosed with hypertension who receive care at community health center settings.

Description

Community Health Workers (CHWs) using patient stories to support hypertension (HTN) management is a CHW-delivered culturally appropriate storytelling intervention for patients diagnosed with HTN. We will develop and test interactive videos presenting stories of patients who have successfully made changes enhancing blood pressure control; and integrate this new tool with a CHW approach to management of hypertension. This two site, two-armed randomized controlled trial aims to recruit 252 english and spanish speaking patients with uncontrolled HTN. All participants are randomized to receive five visits (two in-person and 3 telephone calls) with CHWs either immediately (intervention condition (I)) or 6 months after enrollment (delayed intervention (DI)). Intervention participants receive the intervention immediately and DI participants receive print materials at enrollment and are telephoned 4-6 months after enrollment to schedule an in-person visit at the health enter to begin receiving the intervention protocol.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

Protrusion of abdominal structures into the THORAX as a result of embryologic defects in the DIAPHRAGM often present in the neonatal period. It can be isolated, syndromic, nonsyndromic or be a part of chromosome abnormality. Associated pulmonary hypoplasia and PULMONARY HYPERTENSION can further complicate stabilization and surgical intervention.

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.

Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
