Are you taking Tablets for High Blood Pressure? Do you want to get your Blood Pressure under Control?   Croí is rolling out a Blood Pressure Study in a number of towns in Mayo during November. If you are taking tablets for high blood pressure, we would love to hear from you. This Study is looking at the benefits of providing an education programme to people who are receiving medical treatment (tablets/medication) for high blood pressure. This programme will help people take better care of their blood pressure.   Can I take part in this Study? IMPORTANT: This study is only for people who are taking tablets (medication) to help control blood pressure. Your doctor or pharmacist will be able to tell you if you are taking tablets that help control your blood pressure.   What happens if I agree to take part? If you are interested in taking part we will invite you to a Study Day. These Study Days are taking place in a number of locations so we will offer you the location closest to you. We will measure your blood pressure, pulse, weight and waist circumference. We will also fill in a short questionnaire about your health and your knowledge of high blood pressure.   What happens after the Study Day? Your name will be randomly (by chance) put into an ‘intervention group’ or a ‘control group’. If you are included in the intervention group we will invite you to a once-off educational programme which will provide you with information on how to take care of your blood pressure. The programme is delivered over 2.5 hours and will take place in Ballyhaunis town during evening hours. If you are included in the control group you will not receive the education programme. We will invite everyone back in 6 months’ time to check their blood pressure and weight again. Once the study is over, all the individuals involved in the control group will be given the opportunity to attend the educational programme on blood pressure. You will receive a unique ID number during the Study so your name will not be used in this research. How can I get involved? To find out more about this Study and to book your place, please contact: Croí Reception on 091-544310.   Please bring a list of your tablets (medication) to the Study Day.
