Assisting Older Adults with Insomnia: Appropriate use of Sleep “Aids”
August 15 @ 1:00 pm PDT - 2:00 pm PDTFree
Consultant Pharmacist Hilary Hiles teaches this class. Insomnia is a prevalent problem in late life. Sleep problems in the elderly are often mistakenly considered a normal part of aging. Insomnia is typically undertreated, and nonpharmacologic interventions are underused by health care practitioners. In this session, learn about causes of insomnia, the impact of sleep impairment and approaches to treatment. You will hear from a pharmacist what the benefits and risks are of sedatives or other treatments.
This 1.0-credit continuing education class is FREE to all Consonus clients. Anyone is welcome to join the class – Nurses, Administrators, Caregivers, Med Aides, etc. Only Oregon CMAs are eligible to earn CE credit for the course.
