Learning Objectives

Sleep is a critical piece of prevention and health as sleep is essential for proper functioning of the body. Sleep quantity and quality can change with aging, and the prevalence of sleep disorders increases with age. Therefore, knowledge about sleep and skills to screen for common sleep disorders and to promote quality sleep are necessary for physical therapists to optimize health in older adults. This session will provide an overview of sleep, how sleep often changes with aging, and a discussion of the impact of sleep on body structures and functions.  The presenters will also provide practical guidelines for PTs to screen for the most common sleep disorders in older adults and information that can be integrated into PT practice to promote sleep health.

1. Discuss why sleep is a critical component of prevention and health promotion 
2. Select and implement appropriate screening tools for the most common sleep disorders in older adults
3. Incorporate strategies into practice to promote clients’ sleep health
