Tackling the Problems of Inadequate Sleep and Sleep Disorders
Webinar Date: May 16, 2017
There is growing realization that well-being and performance are closely tied to adequate sleep. Indeed, inadequate sleep results in reduced productivity and errors, and has cardio-metabolic consequences that mimic the effects of pre-diabetes. Sleep deprivation can result from acute sleep loss or chronic inadequate sleep — and the consequences of inadequate sleep can build up over many days.
Sleep disorders such as insomnia and obstructive sleep apnea, meanwhile, are also quite common. Insomnia can be treated with behavioral modifications and there are a wide range of resources available on the web to assist individuals as they attempt to address the problem. Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with obesity, with obese individuals having a markedly increased risk of this disorder. It results in excessive sleepiness and has a significant impact on workplace safety.
Come hear Dr. Allan Pack examine the impact these issues are having on the effectiveness and well-being of employees, and detail specific steps employers can take to help address them, including effective approaches aimed at identifying and treating obstructive sleep apnea and the implementation of education initiatives aimed at addressing the problem of inadequate sleep.
