High blood pressure (HBP) is a worldwide epidemic with health and economic consequences. Although there is a growing body of knowledge, treatment options, and clinical guidelines, a small percentage of people with hypertension (HTN) achieve optimal control. In addition, HBP disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minorities. Strategies to address the management of HTN among specific populations remain scarce. Evidence shows that successful management of HTN requires pharmacological, educational, and self-care approaches. The first 3 summaries here profile research addressing this issue. The research focuses on the tailoring of interventions for racial and ethnic minority groups, specifically African Americans and Korean Americans. The fourth summary profiles an intervention targeted at a low-literacy group to improve diet. Readers are encouraged to access the full articles to learn more details about the intervention strategies and outcomes of these initiatives.
