Clinical Questions Addressed by the CER (1 of 2)

In preparing the report on which this continuing medical education (CME) activity is based, the authors aimed to answer seven Key Questions (KQs). KQ 1 is listed below:

KQ1. In people with hypertension (adults and children), does SMBP monitoring, compared to usual care or other interventions without SMBP, have an effect on clinically important outcomes?

How does SMBP monitoring compare to usual care or other interventions without SMBP in its effect on relevant clinical outcomes (cardiovascular events, mortality, patient satisfaction, quality of life, and adverse events related to antihypertensive agents)?

How does SMBP monitoring compare to usual care or other interventions without SMBP in its effect on relevant surrogate outcomes (cardiac measures: left ventricular hypertrophy, left ventricular mass, and left ventricular mass index) and intermediate outcomes (BP control, BP treatment adherence, or health care process measures)?
