Project description

Despite growing evidence for the high prevalence of primary aldosteronism in people with hypertension, it remains under-diagnosed. However, it is not clear why clinicians do not screen for this condition. Through surveys and interviews, we will identify the barriers and enablers which can inform the design of interventions to increase the timely detection of primary aldosteronism.
