Activity Description

Sleep loss from various causes is very common and often missed by physicians as a treatable health problem. There are strong associations with serious medical conditions such as diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance, hypertension, obesity, obstructive sleep apnea, depression, and anxiety. These medical and psychiatric comorbidities put a person at risk for heart attack and stroke. This activity covers the topic of sleep deprivation. It includes common causes of sleep deprivation, the importance of proper sleep, the cause and effect relationship chronic sleep deprivation has with co-morbid conditions, how to effectively screen for insomnia, and the varied treatment options to improve sleep.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, and social workers.

Learning Objectives
