Arterial hypertension is highly prevalent in developed countries and it is a major cardiovascular risk factor and a major contributor to mortality. Patients are often required to take several antihypertensive medications and about half of patients have uncontrolled blood pressure. The aim of the study is to better understand patient’s perception of arterial hypertension, difficulties regarding their treatment and expectations to improve their adherence.
