Preventing stroke: a narrative review of community interventions for improving hypertension control in black adults

Review published: 2008.

Bibliographic details: Connell P, Wolfe C, McKevitt C.  Preventing stroke: a narrative review of community interventions for improving hypertension control in black adults. Health and Social Care in the Community 2008; 16(2): 165-187. [PubMed: 18290982]

Quality assessment

The authors concluded that hypertension rates in black communities may be reduced by health education combined with strategies to promote self-management of hypertension, and by social support in managing hypertension. In view of methodological problems in the review, in particular the limited search and the failure to systematically assess study quality, the conclusions may not be reliable. Full critical summary

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
