Learning objectives

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • understand the concept of a frail patient and differentiate it from the concept of elderly;
  • identify BP targets and treatment priorities in hypertension in the frail patient; and
  • use practical skills in hypertension management in the frail patient.



Hypertension has reached the proportions of an epidemic in the elderly population. Hypertension management is especially challenging in the frail patient. A balance between global cardiovascular risk and quality of life should be reached, taking into account comorbidities.
