When the Cure Seems Worse than the Disease: Helping Families Adapt to Hypertension Treatment.
Storer, John H.; And Others
Family Relations, v36 n3 p311-15 Jul 1987
Examines the ways hypertension therapy-related stress is mediated by extended family-based self-help groups in rural, central Mississippi. Concludes that these self-help groups are the best means of controlling hypertension in this area because they are built upon an existing family structure and involve the entire extended family in adapting to recommended behavioral changes.
