Abstract
THE LONG-TERM GOAL OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP, PRODUCE, AND DISTRIBUTE HIGH-QUALITY, STATE-OF-THE-ART AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS AND COMPUTER SOFTWARE FOR TEACHING CORRECT BLOOD PRESSURE MEASUREMENT TO PATIENTS, PROFESSIONALS, AND RESEARCHERS ACCORDING TO ESTABLISHED GUIDELINES. A TESTING METHOD FOR THOSE WHO MEASURE BLOOD PRESSURE WILL ALSO BE DEVELOPED TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE PERFORMING ACCORDING TO RECOMMENDED STANDARDS. THESE GOALS WILL BE MET BY REVIEWINGCURRENT PROGRAMS, INCLUDING ON-SITE VISITS OF SUCH PROGRAMS,AND REVIEWING WITH EXPERTS THE BENEFITS AND PROBLEMS WITH THESE PROGRAMS. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE MATERIALS WILL BE REVIEWED BY A PANEL OF EXPERTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS MADE FOR NEW PROGRAMS. SOURCES WHO ARE SKILLED AT PRODUCING HIGH- QUALITY AUDIO AND VIDEO MATERIALS NEEDED WILL BE FOUND. STORYBOARDS FOR PRODUCTION OF THESE MATERIALS WILL BE DEVELOPED AND REVIEWED. COMPUTER SOFTWARE WILL BE DEVELOPEDTO PROVIDE EASY ACCESS TO TESTING PROGRAMS AND THEIR SCORING. THESE ACTIVITIES WILL LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR THE ACTUAL PRODUCTION OF THE MATERIALS DURING PHASE II.
