  • Overview

Gain an overview of evidence-based therapeutic approaches to sleep management, including CBTi and Motivational Interviewing.  And develop a solid foundation on sleep health and its role in optimising client outcomes. Good sleep is a core foundation of health, but it is often underappreciated in clinical work. This presentation brings together the physiology of good sleep and its role in physiotherapy practice and outcomes.  Perhaps no other behaviour has been more closely associated with good sleep than exercise.


Associate Professor Charli Sargent will introduce the concept of good sleep, describe the reciprocal relationship between sleep and exercise, and identify some of the common issues related to exercise that can affect sleep in healthy adults and athletes. 


Dr Sara Winter will present on treatment adherence principles, the bidirectional relationship between sleep and pain, sleep and skill acquisition and therapeutic approaches relevant to Physiotherapy practice in optimisation of outcomes through optimisation of sleep health.
