What To Do About Sleep

What To Do About Sleep
An update on the diagnosis and current recommendations for behavioural treatment of insomnia.

This free event is open to any registered health professionals, including doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, etc. and is CME endorsed (2.0 credits).

Approximately 25% of New Zealanders report ongoing problems with sleep and at least half of these have symptoms of insomnia. When seeking help for these problems, most people consult their GP.

2016 saw the publication of new guidelines from the American College of Physicians (ACP) regarding first-line management of chronic insomnia. This workshop provides up-to-date information about the diagnosis and behavioural treatment of insomnia.

The ACP recommended treatment option (CBTi) will also be introduced, with practical information as to how primary care practitioners can support this approach. The workshop will be presented by Dr Bronwyn Sweeney and Dr Lora Wu, who are both Clinical Psychologists and Sleep Researchers.
