Abstract

Approximately one billion people worldwide have high blood pressure (systolic 140mmHg/diastolic 90 mmHg). The number is expected to increase to 1.56 billion people by the year 2025. That translates to about 1 out of every 4 adults being afflicted with hypertension. Hypertension is prevalent in developing as well as in developed countries. Prolonged uncontrolled or inadequate treatment of hypertension is a major risk factor for the occurrence of heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and other cardiovascular diseases.

 

Statistics showed alarming double-digit figures. With the steadily aging population across the globe and fast-paced lifestyles leading to unhealthy diets and lack of exercise, the increasing trend is expected to continue.

 

Natural experiments have shown rapid reductions in hypertension after dietary improvements in populations. Unfortunately, both the optimal dietary targets and evidence based interventions to achieve them have been unclear for decades. Numerous arrays of specific nutritional factors have been considered over time. This has caused confusion and often misguided dietary priorities.

 

On this background the International Forum for Public Health – IFPH is organizing this one-day training workshop on “Management and Treatment of Hypertension  – MTH”. It focuses on the Medical Nutrition Therapy for Hypertension; Lifestyle Modifications for Hypertension; Nutrition Management and Treatment of Hypertension (DASH diet); Medical Management; and  Pharmacologic therapy.

 

Aim

The aim of MTH is to share ideas and build consensus on the need for a concerted effort to strengthen human and institutional capacity to combat hypertension as health threat and to formulate bold action plan to make it happen.

 

Workshop Specific Aims:

This One-day training workshop is aiming to cover critical updates on Medical Nutrition Therapy for Hypertension; Risk factors for and adverse prognosis in Hypertension;Homeostatic Control of Blood Pressure; Lifestyle Modifications for Hypertension; Nutrition Management and Treatment of Hypertension (Lifestyle modifications, Weight Reduction, Changing dietary patters (DASH diet)); Medical Management; Pharmacologic therapy; Patient education about treatment.

 

Learning objectives

By the end of this workshop the participants should be able to:

  1. Summarise key critical updates on the management of hypertension;
  2. Appraise the modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors;
  3. Advice on possible means to prevent/control hypertension;
  4. Evaluate evidences related to Medical Nutrition Therapy in Hypertension;
  5. Aware of current recommendation associated with hypertension;
  6. Critically discuss and promote lifestyle/dietary modification strategy to prevent/manage hypertension.
