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 (Aug 2014).
