POSTPONED - Insomnia Interventions: First-Line Treatment for Insomnia in Primary Care
IMPORTANT - this program has been postponed, in light of the evolving COVID-19 situation. For more information, please visit the FHS Information Page about COVID-19.
Hosted by the Queen's University Faculty of Health Sciences
This insomnia workshop is designed for primary care professionals and Family Health Teams, but other health professionals and trainees are very welcome.
Medical guidelines recommend cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) as the first-line treatment for chronic insomnia, above sleep medications.
Learners will have their insomnia intervention questions answered, including: What is CBT-I and how is it done? What is the role of sleep medications? How do you stop sleep medications safely?
The day is interactive, and you will not only learn about the science behind CBT-I techniques, but how to provide them so that your patients can reverse their chronic insomnia and experience long-term benefits of sound sleep.

- $175 for RNs, PAs, pharmacists, psychologists, social workers, mental health counsellors, occupational therapists, and other health professionals
