Supporting Patients with Sleep – 1st March 2024, 09:30 to 12:00
With Victoria Tucker, Learning and Development Centre Trainer and Independent Sleep Coach
All Healthcare Professionals
Good quality sleep (and getting enough of it!) is vital for our health and wellbeing. Everyone working in healthcare will have supported patients who are not getting enough sleep, whether this is due to their mental health, physical health, medications, profession or lifestyle. At any one time, 36% of the British population has experienced poor sleep in the last week.
Sleep is a mysterious activity that many of us take for granted, but for others can be the cause of great distress. Poor sleep is known to contribute to poor health outcomes.
This bespoke presentation will begin with a discussion about how we sleep and how our bodies and brains react to the different sleep stages. The presentation also covers sleep anxiety and stress, sleep hygiene, ways of introducing stress management and relaxation techniques, what to do when you have a bad night and why early nights and lie-ins may not be recommended for people with sleep problems. It will also cover instances in which people with poor sleep need to be clinically assessed for a sleep disorder. The session will also cover how to introduce a Sleep Action Plan with patients when you have limited time in practice to support them.
This presentation will also be useful for practitioners experiencing poor sleep, who would like support to understand their sleep problem and find some science-backed solutions.
By the end of the session delegates will:
- Understand the science of sleep and how this can be used to improve sleep quality and quantity.
- Understand the principles of Sleep Hygiene and how these support better sleep.
- Be able to discuss simple sleep tips and techniques with patients for them to try at home.
- Be able to work with patients to build a sleep action plan based on their own feedback, needs and inclinations.
