Clinical Trial Summary

Hypertension disproportionately affects and is inadequately controlled among African American and poor populations. The investigators propose to determine the impact of using trained lay health advisors to help patients address social contextual factors that influence the management of hypertension.


Clinical Trial Description

Hypertension disproportionately affects and is inadequately controlled among African American and poor populations. Health providers generally lack the skills and resources to address social contextual factors (i.e. health and community services, social networks, social stressors, physical environment, and economic resources) that influence management of hypertension. Instead, providers tend to focus on adjusting antihypertensive medication prescriptions and exhorting patients to exercise and eat better. The investigators propose to determine the impact of using trained lay health advisors to help patients address social contextual factors that influence the management of hypertension. Helping patients address these barriers may lead not only to improved blood pressure but also to increased survival, reduced organ damage, and decreased health care costs. This project may also serve as a model of healthcare delivery innovation that could be used to address other health disparity conditions. ;
