About this course

If your patient is not sleeping well there’s an immediate limit on how well they can get. Our patient’s health immediately falters with poor sleep even though they may not be aware of it. How do you help your clients recognise poor sleep hygiene? How do you know if they are sleeping well and how can you help them if they’re not? Dr Greg Potter has a PhD in sleep science and has prepared a presentation on why we need to address and how to address our patient’s sleep.

The discussion will first explore what good sleep health really is, viewing sleep problems through a transdiagnostic sleep and circadian biology lense. The focus will then move to some of the causes and consequences of insomnia before covering the fundamental sleep health behaviours that we should all be doing, regardless of our sleep issues. Finally, Greg will highlight the cornerstones of using cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia and turn to promising, novel ways of mitigating insomnia, such as intensive sleep retraining, lucid dreaming, and effective wearable devices.
