Health education and public health policies for detection, prevention, and treatment of hypertension


Gutzwiller, Felix (1986). Health education and public health policies for detection, prevention, and treatment of hypertension. Journal of Clinical Hypertension, 2(2):210-215.

Abstract

Health education and policy issues in high blood pressure concern concepts and actions for prevention, early detection, and long-term control. Complementary modes of dissemination of the health education message are a medical preventive ("high-risk") strategy and community-oriented programs ("population strategy"). Today, a clear preventive message can be given to the public to prevent and control high blood pressure in whole communities. Data from a Swiss health survey show avenues for future action. Although not only health information matters to the general population, but also easy access to services ("enabling factors"), factors such as health knowledge and attitudes and the presence of a supporting partner ("predisposing factors") are of additional importance for hypertensive patients. For future action, then, the health message should be intensified, and more research on the nature and kind of information is warranted.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
