This article reports the findings from interviews with 11 nurse practitioners (NPs) who provided an in-office, e-health intervention as part of a randomized clinical trial aimed at improving medication adherence and reducing adverse self-medication behaviors in older adults with hypertension. The NPs' perspective of their experience with training for the research protocol, recruitment of patient participants, implementing the e-health intervention, and patient response was elicited through open-ended questions in individual face-to-face tape recorded interviews.
