Guidelines for management of persons with hypertension and high cholesterol educational video was developed for primary care clinicians and their support staff to demonstrate how team based care can be utilized in improving  two prevalent chronic conditions: hypertension and high cholesterol. This video presents the model and guidelines for the identification, treatment and management of the two chronic diseases. These guidelines build upon the existing and emerging work of many partners in Wisconsin and the nation to foster health care transformation that advances patient-centered team-based care and the move toward value-based care, improved patient health and safety, and improved health of the population.

This educational video will provide an overview of the conceptual model that addresses the following:

  • The importance of an engaged patient,
  • Identification of the model’s core elements (Team, workforce and parent organization),
  • Review of the influencing factors (Core principles, shared values, hallmarks of practice, triple aim of health care),
  • Importance of community linkages and connections,
  • Guidelines for patient-centered team-based care for interprofessional clinical hypertension utilizing ten recommendations for work plan development,
  • Guidelines for patient-centered team-based care for interprofessional clinical high cholesterol utilizing ten recommendations for work plan development.

Target audience: Clinicians, system leadership, community-based services
