About

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of interventions to improve adherence to medication and healthier lifestyle choices on blood pressure over a 6 month period in a group of people at high risk for recurrent stroke events. The participants have already had a stroke or TIA, and have uncontrolled blood pressure, as well as problems with memory and problem-solving, or miss taking medications, or who do not believe in the effectiveness of their medications. Interventions focus on motivational interviewing, adherence counseling with memory cuing, and self-monitoring of blood pressure.
