  • Overview

    Insomnia is common among the elderly and is known to have a negative effect on quality of life in this population.  Due to many safety concerns with medications in the elderly, even geriatric specialized providers tend underdiagnose and undertreat this condition. Targeted to consultant and community pharmacists, this 90-minute webinar will feature a sleep specialist and board-certified geriatric pharmacist teaming up to provide insights into sleep science and conditions commonly associated with insomnia in the elderly while diving deep into the safety concerns and recommendations surrounding medications that treat insomnia.  Dr. Roth and Dr. Saffel are ready to take your questions following the webinar!
