Abstract

In Sweden, hypertension, is one of the most common reasons to attend primary care thus a Swedish public health problem of epic proportions. There is a general consensus about that effective antihypertensive treatment reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and premature death. Non-pharmacological treatment is advocated to be the basis of treatment. The caregiver is responsible for systematically plan, direct, control, and monitor, evaluate and improve the quality of treatment. Leader of the primary care center is the operation manager. The purpose of the study was to make a survey of the primary health centers in the south of Sweden and their guidelines for hypertension treatment, and to investigate the managers' views on the care and treatment they provided. The study had a mixed methods approach and the data collection was made by telephone interviews. Of 252 invited operation managers 26 participated. The quantitative result was inconclusive. The qualitative result shows that the hypertension treatment offered currently in the south of Sweden is unequal partly due to economic factors but also because of the complex matter where the staff’s own interests and the internal structures are governing the treatment. The operational managers are clearly aware of the inequality problem and clearly expressed the need of a national guideline for hypertension care and were more than willing to introduce such a thing at their center. The study further concludes that District Nurses comprise a valuable asset in the hypertension treatment offered at the primary care centers. (Less)
