In this Webinar, Dr Fleming describes the control of normal sleep and defines evidence based strategies that are required to maintain a normal sleep-wake rhythm. He reviews the findings from a variety of studies addressing the intricate, reciprocal relationship between pain and disturbed sleep and discusses the known mechanisms whereby pain disrupts sleep and disturbed sleep exacerbates pain. He ends by discussing the bio-psycho-social interventions that have been shown to be effective in modulating pain and improving sleep.
At the conclusion of this Webinar attendees will be able to describe:
