a strategy consisting of educational-therapeutic intervention actions was applied, it was concretized in a health educational diagnosis project, which allowed to increase the level of knowledge of hypertensive patients about their disease; after its implementation, it was found that they did not develop vascular complications, which generated a greater commitment to their health.
