Recognizing and Managing Insomnia in Primary Care and Specialty Settings

Article Abstract

Insomnia is a common feature of both medical and psychiatric disorders. Whether as a symptom of an illness or as a comorbid disorder, insomnia worsens patient outcomes related to quality of life, functioning, workplace productivity, and health care expenditures. This CME webcast covers how to screen for insomnia in patients with both medical and mental illnesses and how to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. The authors also review evidence-based therapies for insomnia, including psychological/behavioral interventions and medications.
