Free Online CME on Sleep Disorders


Sleep Disorders: Keys to Effective Recognition and Management

We are proud to offer mental health and primary care clinicians free, CME/CE-certified education on one of the common clinical challenges that they face: sleep disorders.

Sleep disorders are associated with psychiatric, medical, social and work-related impairments. They also cost hundreds of billions of dollars each year on related medical treatment.

Program Overview

This program provides evidence-based education on effective strategies to identify and treat sleep disorders.



This CME-certified activity helps mental health and primary care professionals effectively screen for and diagnose insomnia, as well as identify appropriate pharmacologic and behavioral interventions.

Why is this important to your practice? Approximately 10 to 20 percent of the general population meets diagnostic criteria for insomnia, and the incidence in patients with medical illness is substantially higher. Patients with insomnia report decreased quality of life and experience medical and emotional impairments of the same magnitude as patients with depression or chronic medical illness.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Narcolepsy

This CME-certified activity helps mental health and primary care professionals recognize symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and restless legs syndrome (RLS). Expert faculty also review effective treatment strategies.

It’s important to stay current with standards of care for OSA and RLS, as patients frequently discuss their symptoms with clinicians yet evidence indicates that diagnoses are commonly missed. Both conditions are associated with daytime fatigue and other significant medical conditions.

Restless Legs Syndrome and Circadian Rhythm Disorders

This CME-certified activity helps mental health and primary care professionals assess and treat narcolepsy and Circadian rhythm disorders (CRD).

Content for this activity focuses on appropriate diagnostic tools for narcolepsy, as well as pharamacologic options and strategies for behavioral optimization of sleep schedules. In addition, expert faculty review the several kinds of CRD – such as shift work disorder, jet lag disorder, delayed sleep phase disorder, and more – and their varied symptomatology and treatment options.

Sleep Disorders and Psychiatry

This CME-certified activity helps mental health and primary care professionals understand and navigate a very common clinical challenge: the bi-directional relationship between sleep disorders and psychiatric symptoms.

While treating psychiatric symptoms may improve sleep, treating sleep disorders can also have positive impacts on psychiatric conditions. In fact, sleep disorders may increase the risk of developing psychiatric disorders. Also, many psychiatric medications have adverse effects on sleep.

During this activity, expert faculty focus on evidence that enhances your understanding of this important inter-relationship. Our goal is to help you provide optimal care to patients who suffer from sleeps disorders.
