Video Transcription
We are so excited to see you here. I don't know how your day has been today, but for me it's been the kind of day that spending the afternoon talking
about patient stories is a definite highlight. So I hope that you will enjoy what we are planning to share with you today. My name is Ayanna Buckner. I'm one
of the faculty members with the ACPM Hypertension Demonstration Projects that focuses on African-American men. The title of today's session is Stories
Hypertension Control is About People. I do have to tell you a little bit of a disclaimer. This presentation is supported by the American College of
Preventive Medicine through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services. The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators like myself do not necessarily reflect the official
policies of the Department of Health and Human Services, nor does the mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the
U.S. government. There are no disclosures or conflicts of interest from me or any of the other speakers that you'll hear from in this
session. So what I'll do is I'll give you a brief overview of the project and then you'll hear from our pilot demonstration sites. There are four of
them. They are Cook County Health System, Henry Ford Health System, Lincoln Community Health Center, and the University of Alabama. And then we'll
have questions. Unfortunately two of our panelists have had some difficulties and aren't able to join us, so you will hear from the faculty members who are working
with that with those projects. That means you'll hear from me again and you'll also hear from Dr. Stacey Schott. Briefly our learning objectives are at the end
Video Summary
The video transcript provides an overview of the ACPM Hypertension Demonstration Projects targeting African-American men. Supported by the American College of Preventive Medicine and the CDC, these projects aim to increase screening, testing, and enrollment in self-measured blood pressure monitoring programs. Social determinants of health are also addressed. Four demonstration sites – Cook County Health System, Henry Ford Health System, Lincoln Community Health Center, and the University of Alabama – share their approaches and successes. Cook County Health System provides blood pressure monitors, classes, counseling, and referrals. Henry Ford Health System utilizes pharmacists and nurses to adjust medications and educate patients. Lincoln Community Health Center conducts telephonic outreach and refers patients to support services. The University of Alabama shifted to virtual classes during COVID-19 and collaborates with students for patient outreach. The projects demonstrate improved hypertension control rates, increased patient satisfaction, and valuable learning experiences for students. In terms of credits, the speaker acknowledges the support of various individuals and organizations, including ACPM, Dr. Granger, Duke School of Nursing, and Dr. Veronica Ray at Lincoln. They also mention the contribution of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as the generous support of Dr. Veronica Ray through the Lincoln Legacy Award. The University of Alabama program specifically mentions the use of a population health tool, a hypertension registry, in-person training, an app called the Hype app, and medical student outreach. The speaker emphasizes the program's success, sustainability, and positive impact on medical students' education, while acknowledging challenges related to technology and patient engagement.
