Schedule "Accurate Blood Pressure Measurement" Training for Your Practice

Although blood pressure is measured frequently, studies have shown there is good reason to doubt the accuracy of the readings. Errors in blood pressure measurement greatly increase costs and preventable deaths. MaineHealth’s clinical specialist Ann Cannon, RN, provides on-site training in accurate blood measurement at no cost.

The training will review the basics:

  • Update clinicians on current guidelines
  • Provide hands-on practice in accurate blood pressure measurement
  • MA’s receive CEU’s registered with the AAMA (American Assoc. of MA’s)
  • Physicians are eligible for 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 credits and all participants receive a certificate of attendance with 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 credits

The training is an hour and a half, but can be customized for your practice.
