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.
