Pulling Together for Wellness: Elder Self-Management Blood Pressure Program
AIHC is offering assistance to Tribes and UIHPs to participate in a culturally appropriate Self-Management Blood Pressure (SMBP) program. The Pulling Together for Wellness framework is used to establish a collaboration between health clinics and elders’ programs to implement a model to accurately measure blood pressure curriculum developed by Dr. Cheryl Farmer from Washington State Department of Health. In partnership with DOH, AIHC is:
Identifying interest in a self-management blood pressure program
identifying Tribes/UIHPs with Community Health Representatives
providing coordination and staff support as appropriate
providing materials and training support
providing onsite technical assistance
