New guideline summary from the Community Preventative Task Force recommends team-based care for improvement in blood pressure control

The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends team-based care to improve blood pressure (BP) control on the basis of strong evidence of effectiveness in improving the proportion of patients with controlled BP and reducing systolic BP (SBP) and diastolic BP (DBP).

Evidence was considered strong based on findings from 80 studies of team-based care organized primarily with nurses and pharmacists working in collaboration with primary care providers, other professionals, and patients. The economic evidence indicates that team-based care is cost effective.

Read full recommendation, including the rationale and statement of cost effectiveness; a summary of the Task Force finding and rationale is available at www.thecommunityguide.org/cvd/teambased care.html
