Registration & Breakfast at 6:45am
48% of primary care physicians do not ask patients about sleep in their histories and physicals, yet sleep has an undeniable impact on mental health. Dr. Morgan of Mercy Health’s Sleep Center will share practical tools that will help attendees understand sleep in the context of treating mental health disorders and prescribing psychotropic medications. Primary care team members will learn how to talk to patients about sleep, why it’s important, and how they can help improve patient functioning through sleep.
