Abstract

Physicians working at the General Medical Clinic of the Johns Hopkins Hospital entered into tutorials to improve their effectiveness as managers and educators of patients with essential hypertension. After exposure to a single teaching session, tutored physicians allocated a greater percent of clinic visit time to patient teaching than did control physicians, achieving increased patient knowledge and more appropriate patient beliefs regarding hypertension and its therapy. Patients of tutored physicians were more compliant with drug regimens and had better control of blood pressure than patients of untutored physicians. The personal physician, if he is provided with strategies for identifying the noncompliant patient and for intervening in that behavior, can apply a stimulus to his patients that results in improved compliance and better control of hypertension.
