Practice guidelines recommend home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) in the management of hypertension. We surveyed generalists and subspecialists regarding HBPM attitudes and practices in hypertensive patients. Both use HBPM for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes but question the evidence regarding HBPM efficacy. Standardized implementation and monitoring methods to improve HBPM practices are absent. Both generalists and specialists have concerns about HBPM instrument capabilities and perceive patient physical limitations and negative attitudes as additional barriers to effective blood pressure monitoring outside the office.
