Rationale for update

This document is a partial update of Clinical Guideline 18 (2004) and Clinical Guideline 34 (2006) on Essential Hypertension in adults. The sections that have not been amended are integrated with the updated guidance in this document. Both guidelines are available in full in the appendices of the document.

Improvements in methodology since 2006 mean the way information is presented may, at times, be inconsistent (for example, the style of review write-up, and 2011 recommendations are not graded according to the strength of evidence, unlike those in the 2006).
