Doogue R., Hayes P., Tucker K., Fahey T., Sheikhi A., Koshiaris C., Glynn LG.
Objectives: This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:. The objective of this review is to determine the effectiveness of SBPM in adults with hypertension on blood pressure control as compared to OBPM or usual care (i.e. usual care that does not include systematic use of SBPM). Is SBPM more efficacious in reducing blood pressure, compared with OBPM or usual care? Is SBPM with additional supports more efficacious in reducing blood pressure, compared with no additional support? Are there any adverse events associated with SBPM, compared with OBPM or usual care?.
