The TASMIN-SR study investigated the effect of self-monitoring and medication self-titration on systolic blood pressure in hypertensive patients at high risk of cardiovascular disease. Locally, 6 practices in Norfolk and Suffolk recruited 30 patients to this study. Among patients with hypertension at high risk of cardiovascular disease, self-monitoring with self-titration of antihypertensive medication compared with usual care resulted in lower systolic blood pressure at 12 months.

The results have been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
