ASH Position Papers
The American Society of Hypertension, Inc. (ASH) recognizes the importance
of providing guidance regarding the practicing needs of Designated Specialists
in Clinical Hypertension, and other health care providers treating hypertensive
patients. To meet this challenge, the ASH Board of Directors approved
an initiative to establish a Hypertension Writing Group.
The Hypertension Writing Group is composed of invited authors and overseen
by a Steering Committee which reports to the ASH Board of Directors. The
Position Papers address topics in hypertension research that a traditional
single guidelines paper would not cover in depth.
