OCO Webinar: Hypertension Quality Standard

May 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

As a caregiver, understanding a diagnosis of hypertension (high blood pressure) can be complex. People with hypertension may not feel any symptoms, but if the condition is not well managed, it can lead to serious health problems, such as a heart attack or stroke. Knowing where and how to access accurate information can help you support the person you’re caring for to maintain a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.

In recognition of Hypertension Awareness Month in May, join our webinar to learn about:

  • Ontario Health’s new Hypertension quality standard and opportunities to improve care for people with hypertension
  • Information, tools, and resources to support and help your care recipient with managing their hypertension (e.g., health behaviour changes and self-management)
  • Questions to discuss with your care recipient’s health care team
  • Stories from caregivers who have provided care and support to people with hypertension

Our Speaker: Gracia Mabaya is a Lead in the Clinical and Quality Standards Program at Ontario Health. Having dedicated nearly eight years to Ontario Health, she has led and contributed to the development and refinement of quality standards across various health conditions, notably leading the development of the Hypertension: Care in the Community for Adults quality standard.

All attendees who complete the post-webinar survey can enter a draw to win an Ontario Caregiver Organization prize. This draw will be held the following week, and is only available to residents of Ontario. Winners will be contacted via email after the draw.

In addition, to those who attend the live event, we will be holding a live draw for two $25 Everything Card gift cards. (The same rules apply as above.)
