Insomnia and Pain: Nonpharmacological Solutions is organized by Academy of Integrative Pain Management (AIPM) and will be held during May 01, 2018 - May 01, 2021.
The target audience for this medical event is all clinicians who treat chronic pain. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi) is a nonpharmacologic evidence-based treatment approach for insomnia. The links between pain and sleep are bidirectional. Inadequate sleep can reduce pain threshold, facilitate inflammation, and inhibit healing and restoration. The significant challenges facing sleep in a setting of chronic pain distinguish this group from those with typical chronic insomnia. Despite challenges, nonpharmacologic interventions for insomnia have an important role in insomnia comorbid with pain. This program discusses sleep challenges, CBTi, and potential adaptations relevant to a population suffering with pain.
Conference Objectives are :
• Discuss the different types of insomnia
• Discuss research showing the bidirectional relationship between pain and sleep
• Discuss the tenets of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi) and other nonprescription medication strategies
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
