Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v34 n2 p151-174 Jun 2009
Doctor Interactive Group Medical Appointments (DIGMAs) were conducted over a period of 7 months; 73 hypertensive male veterans were enrolled in the study and 58 completed it. Findings indicated that both systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings were significantly reduced from pretest to posttest. Participant self-report of health promoting behavior and hypertension self efficacy also increased significantly, while perceived stress levels did not decrease as predicted. (Contains 3 tables.)
