Training Module For Health Care Providers
The Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) on the Management of Hypertension (3rd Edition) was published in February 2008 and the Quick Reference (QR) for Health Care Providers was published in January 2010.
This Training Module is developed to assist the ‘trainers’ to:
1. Deliver the key content and messages of the CPG systematically.
2. Demonstrate the applicability of CPG recommendations in clinical practice via interactive case discussions.
3. Offer implementation strategies for effective hypertension management based on key elements of the Wagner Chronic Care Model.
This document contains the following:
1. CD-ROM containing the powerpoint presentations.
2. Introduction and summary of training module content.
3. Interactive case discussions in the beginning of each topic.
4. Pre-test and post-test questionnaire (MCQs).
5. Evaluation feedback of the training session.
All levels of health care providers involved with the care of hypertensive patients in both primary care and secondary care settings.
In tandem with the main CPG, the clinical questions to be addressed in this training module include:
1. What are the current best practices in the management of a patient with hypertension?
2. How can hypertension management be done in tandem with the overall strategy to manage
global vascular risk of a patient?
3. How can we improve the outcome of care for hypertensive patients?
Key Recommendations for Successful Implementation of this Training Module:
1. Use interactive group discussion methods, rather than didactic way of teaching.
2. Gauge the learning and language used (English/Malay/Others) to the level of target audience (suited to various levels of health care providers).
3. Use problem-based facilitating methods.
4. Encourage participants to familiarize themselves with the CPG and the QR prior to the training session (prerequisite).
5. Emphasize teamwork.
6. Allow participants to express their ideas, concerns and expectations openly.
7. Address issues constructively.
8. Obtain systematic feedback from participants.
