|Title:||Towards An Integrated Self-Monitoring SolutIoN for Stroke/TIA (TASMIN5S) – The BP Together Study|
|Project Description:||After having a stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA), people are more likely to have a further stroke. The best way to reduce this risk is to reduce high blood pressure, and yet at present a significant proportion of stroke survivors do not have their high blood pressure properly controlled. TASMIN5S/BPTogether is a randomised control trial of self-monitoring of blood pressure in survivors of Stroke and TIA with poorly controlled blood pressure. The intervention is based around stroke/TIA survivors (or their carers) measuring their blood pressure at home, with input from a GP or specialist when needed.
BP Together is led by researchers from the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford with the University of Cambridge and University of Edinburgh acting as Co-ordinating Centres.
