Control of blood pressure through lifestyle modification can reduce the risk of death from coronary heart disease; however, many individuals with a diagnosis of high blood pressure, or hypertension (HTN), have suboptimal adherence to lifestyle modification for various reasons. Telephone interventions to address chronic disease have proven to be successful. In addition, studies have shown that when patients receive individualized, or tailored, interventions for behavior change, better health outcomes occur. Health professionals working with individuals who have a diagnosis of HTN can use the Sustainable Change Sequence (SCS) to assess stage of behavior related to lifestyle modification for blood pressure control and provide patient-tailored interventions for sustained behavior change over time. Results of this DNP project support that patients can have an improved stage of behavior related to lifestyle modification for blood pressure control after receiving a telephone delivered patient-tailored intervention.
