ASH Hypertension Self-Assessment Guide
The ASH Hypertension Self-Assessment Guide is a state-of-the-art review
of hypertension written by over 40 recognized leaders in the field designed
to raise the level of knowledge of all of those who are responsible in
any way for the care of the patient with hypertension.
The complete Guide contains 30 chapters which cover topics in Basic Science,
Diagnostic Evaluation, Secondary Hypertension, Treatment and Special Conditions.
(See outline below.) Each chapter contains questions that provide a critical
assessment of the reader's knowledge. CME credit is available for
the successful completion of each chapter.
The ASH Self-Assessment Guide articles, references and questions are published
each month in the
Journal of the American Society of Hypertension (JASH). The Self-Assessment Guide Post-Test
(with CME credit) can be found on the Professional Testing Corporation (PTC) website
The Society hopes that qualified individuals who review and study this
material will be better prepared to treat hypertension patients and even
be inspired to take the ASH Hypertension Specialist examination.
