Four online courses were created to improve the accuracy and technique in blood pressure measurement and also to increase the use of self-measured blood pressure monitoring for individuals with hypertension or those who are hard to diagnose. These online course modules are available FREE of charge, can be taken anytime, are for healthcare professionals, are approximately 30 minutes in length, and provide 0.5 CEs for each module or 1.5 for the first three modules. CE’s are generated at the completion of each module. Only the SMBP module does not provide CE’s. For the online BP training modules we offer CME and CNE credits.
