Evolving Concepts in Hypertension: Mechanisms, Management, and Future Directions

Course Description

Hypertension and CKD are closely associated, having an intermingled cause-and-effect relationship. BP increases with declines in kidney function, and sustained elevations in BP hasten the progression of kidney diseases. This program addresses novel mechanisms around the development of hypertension, current management issues including BP targets, diagnostic challenges in evaluating BP, hypertension in special populations, and the role of novel interventions in the management of hypertension.
