NURS 6630 Sleep Wake Disorders Discussion

NURS 6630 Sleep Wake Disorders Discussion

 

It is not uncommon to experience a night or two of disrupted
sleep when there is something major going on in your life. However, sleep/wake
disorders are much more than an occasional night of disrupted sleep. A recent
report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that
between 50 and 70 million American have problems with sleep/wake disorders
(CDC, 2015). Although the vast majority of Americans will visit their primary
care provider for treatment of these disorders, many providers will refer
patients for further evaluation. For this Discussion, you consider how you
might assess and treat the individuals based on the provided client factors.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

Assess client factors and history to develop personalized
therapy plans for clients with sleep/wake disorders

Analyze factors that influence pharmacokinetic and
pharmacodynamic processes in clients requiring therapy for sleep/wake disorders

Evaluate efficacy of treatment plans for clients presenting
for sleep/wake therapy

Apply knowledge of providing care to adult and geriatric
clients presenting for sleep/wake disorders
