-    costing template to estimate the local costs and savings involved in implementing the ABPM recommendations.

  • Audit support, including electronic audit tool for monitoring local practice.
  • Baseline assessment tool to help you identify which areas of practice may need more support, decide on clinical audit topics and prioritise implementation activities.
  • Clinical case scenarios to illustrate how the recommendations from the guideline can be applied to the care of patients presenting to primary care.
  • Implementation advice on how to increase capacity for ABPM in order to facilitate implementation of the ABPM recommendations in practice.
