Abstract

The Fuld Object Memory Evaluation and MacNeill Lichtenberg Decision Tree are useful screening tools to detect cognitive impairments that may be associated with difficulty in hypertension-related self-care and blood pressure outcomes. The results of a pilot study exploring the effect of cognition on hypertension-related self-care and blood pressure outcomes among African-American elders are described.
