About this event

  • Date and time Fri 22 May 2020 from 9:00am to 4:55pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Pain Medicine, Sleep Medicine

Join us as we bring together experts from two separate faculties, pain and sleep medicine, to explore the bidirectional link between pain and sleep. 

A bad night sleep worsens pain. Many patients attribute poor sleep to the primary pain condition rather than considering distinct and treatable primary sleep disorders such as sleep apnoea or restless legs. Learning how to spot and treat sleep disorders improves outcomes in the pain clinic.

Attendees can expect to:

  • Understand normal and abnormal sleep and how abnormal sleep is measured and impacts upon pain.
  • Identify common sleep disorders as they may present within the pain clinic.
  • Be knowledgeable about impact of treatment of insomnia upon pain outcomes.
  • Gain awareness of the impact of pharmacological therapies for pain upon sleep.

20% discount is available until 21 April 2020 for delegates attending 'Pain prehabilitation prior to surgery' event being held on 21 May. This discount is valid until 21 April 2020, to access please email customer service on events@rsm.ac.uk.
