To Sleep: Perchance to Dream
This program will review the changes in sleep that occur with age and impact sleep quality. The presenters provide a methodology to comprehensively assess the psychiatric, medical, and neurologic illnesses that impact the health related outcomes of disordered sleep. Participants will be better able to recognize primary sleep disorders in long-term care residents and improve their care at both the individual and facility level.
