Sleep is essential for proper functioning of the body and is therefore a critical component of optimal health. Sleep disruptions occur in 1/3 of the US population and frequently occur in individuals with various conditions that are typically treated by PTs and PTAs. Therefore, knowledge about sleep and skills to screen for sleep disorders and to promote quality sleep are necessary for healthcare providers to promote health and facilitate optimal outcomes. This session will provide an overview of sleep and a discussion of the impact of sleep on body structures and functions.  The presenter will provide practical information to screen for the most common sleep disorders and information that can be integrated into practice to promote sleep health.





Upon completion of this course the participant should be able to:
  1. Discuss why sleep is a critical component of health and wellness
  2. Describe how sleep impacts the proper function of various body systems and functions that impact patient outcomes in physical therapy
  3. Select and implement appropriate screening tools for the most common sleep disorders
  4. Incorporate strategies into practice to promote clients’ sleep health
