  1. * In this table, 'Possible' refers to the potential use of interventions. In the ACCG scenario, this refers to the fact that treatment with antihypertensive pharmacological therapy can be considered in this case. For the PCP scenario, data from H2000 suggest that use of antihypertensive pharmacological therapy did occur in all BP groups, as did monitoring.
