STRatifying Antihypertensive Treatments In multi-morbid hypertensives For personalised management of Blood Pressure (STRATIFY-BP) (360G-Wellcome-211182_Z_18_Z)

Polypharmacy (five or more prescribed medications) is common in older people and is associated with an increased risk of adverse drug reactions. Preventative medications, such as those used to manage blood pressure and cholesterol, are common in polypharmacy and often require large numbers of people to be treated to prevent a small number of cardiovascular disease events. This leaves many individuals on drugs of little benefit, some of whom may be susceptible to side effects such as falls, kidney problems and muscle pain. As patients get older, the risks and benefits of their treatments may change, but doctors and patients have little information to inform their understanding of when this might happen. This proposal will use electronic health records with prediction modelling, causal inference and systematic review methods to establish the strength of association between antihypertensive therapy and side effects and build calculators which predict the likelihood of adverse events. These will be used to develop decision tools which predict an individual’s likelihood of benefit and harm from taking therapy. This approach will be applied to other preventative treatment areas and the resulting tools will help patients and doctors to make better informed decisions about starting or continuing these drugs.
