Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Stroke Telemedicine Outpatient Prevention Program for Blood Pressure Reduction
Official Title  ICMJE Stroke Telemedicine Outpatient Program (STOP) for Blood Pressure Reduction
Brief Summary The purpose of this pilot trial is to compare post-stroke care blood pressure (BP) treatment using an interdisciplinary telehealth model [called the Stroke Telemedicine Outpatient Program (STOP) for Blood Pressure Reduction] to usual care in stroke patients at risk for uncontrolled BP. The intervention will address general and stroke-related factors associated with racial disparities in BP control. We will assess feasibility of implementation of the trial and will use the measures and outcomes assessed in the pilot to examine knowledge gaps.
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE
  • Stroke Prevention
  • Blood Pressure
  • Telemedicine
  • Psychosocial Impairment
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Behavioral: Educational Packet
    The patient will receive an educational packet.
  • Behavioral: Phone call at 72 hours by discharge nurse navigator
    Patients will receive a phone call at 72 hours by the discharge nurse navigator (standard of care) to assure that they have received their medications and follow-up appointments
  • Behavioral: Telehealth visit at 7 days, 1 month, 3 months, and 5 months after discharge
    A stroke prevention trained nurse practitioner or MD or social worker will review the participant's hospital records and depression, dietary, and sleep apnea screens,will reinforce the care plan based on patient-specific needs.They will counsel patients on salt reduction, the Mediterranean diet, and the importance of diet and exercise for stroke prevention.Along with the pharmacist they will also review the BP data to determine the need for medication adjustment and will discuss the side effects and interactions.The social worker will assess the need for medication assistance and other resources. The care plan will be shared with primary care providers (PCP)and patients will be referred to a PCP if they do not have one. The social worker will also will assist uninsured patients in applying for Texas County Indigent Care programs.
  • Behavioral: Educational messages every other week
    The messages will be sent to the participants cellular phones and will contain one of the following: a reminder to monitor BP, information from about lifestyle and diet for BP reduction, or a message from the pharmacist about medication adherence
  • Diagnostic Test: BP monitoring by QardioARM with periodic transmission of BP data
    Participants will be prompted to transmit BP logs through the telemonitoring device every 2 weeks until average BP is < 130/80, then monthly thereafter. Uncontrolled BP will prompt a call from the pharmacist to discuss medication adherence and the need for further titration.
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: STOP model
    Pharmacist evaluates patient prior to discharge and a nurse navigator contacts patient 72 hours after discharge. Patient receives educational packet and a blue tooth enabled BP monitor with an iPad. A video telehealth visit occurs 7 days after discharge attended by a nurse practitioner (NP) or MD , social worker (SW), and pharmacist. The NP and pharmacist review the BP data to determine the need for medication adjustment. The SW assesses the need for resources. BP is reviewed via an online portal every 2 weeks until average BP is < 130/80mmHg, then monthly. Uncontrolled BP prompts a call from the pharmacist to discuss medication adherence and titration. Subsequent video telehealth visits occur 1 month, 3 months, and 5 months after enrollment.
    Interventions:
    • Behavioral: Educational Packet
    • Behavioral: Phone call at 72 hours by discharge nurse navigator
    • Behavioral: Telehealth visit at 7 days, 1 month, 3 months, and 5 months after discharge
    • Behavioral: Educational messages every other week
    • Diagnostic Test: BP monitoring by QardioARM with periodic transmission of BP data
  • Active Comparator: Usual Care
    Pharmacist evaluates patient prior to discharge and a nurse navigator contacts patient 72 hours after discharge. Patient receives educational packet.
    Interventions:
    • Behavioral: Educational Packet
    • Behavioral: Phone call at 72 hours by discharge nurse navigator
