Hypertension Program

Hypertension 

The goal of the Hypertension Program is to achieve better outcomes through increased control of high blood pressure. We follow current Canadian guidelines by ensuring that you are on the best medication possible, if required, as well as focusing on lifestyle changes such as sodium reduction, weight loss and exercise. As a patient of New Vision, you have access to a variety of health care providers including dietitians as we work together to achieve this goal.

Types of Patients Seen

Patients who have high blood pressure or a diagnosis of hypertension.

Appointment Information

What you can expect at your appointment with your Nurse Practitioner or Nurse:

  • Your blood pressure will be taken using a Bp TRU monitor.  This machine takes 6 readings, 1 minute apart and averages the last 5 to provide an accurate assessment of your blood pressure. If there is suspicion that your blood pressure (BP) is high because you are in a clinic setting, we will send you home with a monitor to check your BP at home.
  • We will discuss what hypertension is, how high BP affects your body and what can be done to reduce your risks.

It is important to monitor your BP on a regular basis to ensure that it is within the normal range.  We will let you know when you should book your next appointment with us.

Referral Process

Any patient with a diagnosis of hypertension will be included in the program.
