Home Blood Pressure Monitoring To Improve Maternal Health

About the Meeting

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality, and the risk of complications continues after delivery. Comprehensive programs for management of hypertension in pregnancy and postpartum, including home blood pressure monitoring, have demonstrated impressive outcomes in improving maternal health.

This webinar will include presentations on two model programs: Heart Safe Motherhood, at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital; and STAMPP-HTN (Systematic Treatment And Management of PostPartum Hypertension), at the University of Chicago Hospital.
