The OT Sleep Assessment & Intervention Course + Sleep Intervention Tools
Assessment resources, intervention pdfs, and evidence based lessons that equip you to understand, assess, educate, and help your adult and older adult patients with sleep issues.
Do you have patients who struggle with sleep issues?
Sleep is the universal Occupation, and with sleep issues on the rise, Occupational Therapists have an important role in helping address patient sleep issues.
The problem is that most OTs weren't given the education and concrete tools they need to effectively help patients with sleep issues....
Also, the reality of today's workplace is that there simply isn't enough time to do all the research and build tools to confidently deal with this complex area.
Because of that, most OTs turn to the one thing that other OTs do: Sleep Hygiene....
So what's wrong with that?
Well, sleep hygiene can be one part of the picture... but evidence shows sleep hygiene alone doesn't work.
The good news is that as an Occupational Therapist, sleep is an area that matches well to your skill set.
That's why we made The OT Sleep Assessment and Intervention Course, and the Sleep Intervention Package.
What's covered in the course?
We'll start by getting you acquainted with the course contents, and giving you the full sleep intervention package containing downloadable PDFs to immediately advance your toolset for practice.
