Rest and Sleep play an important role in all aspects of physical and mental well being. Several medical conditions impact directly on sleep while a host of other conditions are precipitated by poor sleep. In this fantastic introduction, Tanya Muir, “The Sleep OT”, explores the context of sleep health for function and the importance of including sleep assessment and intervention in all adult physical and psychiatric intervention.   This course will review:
  • Basic Physiology of Sleep
  • Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Health and Function
  • Common Sleep Disorders in Adulthood
  • Screening and Assessment – who, how and referrals
  • Introduction to Behavioural Sleep Interventions, resources and referrals.
