Insomnia is one of the most common complaint sin primary care. About 20% of patients (including the elderly and children) report either substantial sleep disturbances or dissatisfaction with sleep quality. Because many suffering from sleep difficulties, however, do not seek medical help, the problem is likely greater than recorded. When medical help is sought, the majority of patients look to primary care providers for guidance. However, primary care providers have difficulty addressing insomnia because of its heterogeneous causes, a lack of knowledge/comfort with CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) treatment for insomnia, and concerns about pharmacotherapy options. For a variety of reasons, pharmacotherapy remains a commonly chosen approach to treatment, despite the fact that it is a less desirable option.
The Insomnia in Adults module will enable clinicians to consider using evidence-based nonpharmacological management to improve sleep quality; have a clear understanding of the appropriate.
The Approach to Common Anorectal Issues module will enable clinicians to accurately diagnose and effectively manage benign, common anorectal conditions including anal fissures, hemorrhoids, chronic itch, abscess, and warts; and recognize red flags for serious conditions that require further investigation or referral.
