Abstract [en]

Hypertension is a common disease that affects approximately one fifth of the Swedish population. It may be caused by lifestyle issues such as stress, obesity, and physical inactivity. It is the job of public health nurses to control patients' blood pressure and provide support and counseling for necessary lifestyle changes, thus promoting health, preventing hypertension, and improving high blood pressure. The study's aim was to review and describe the knowledge contained in the literature regarding district nurses' nursing interventions for patients with hypertension. The method was a literature study of 12 scientific studies. The results indicate that public health nursing interventions for patients with hypertension provide health education in either a standardized or a person-centered way by monitoring health, providing health counseling, and supporting lifestyle changes. The conclusion is that it can be difficult to distinguish between a standardized approach and a person-centered approach when a health-promoting intervention can start by using a standardized approach and then move to a person-centered approach and vice versa.
