Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder seen in primary care, accounting for 8 out of 10 sleep disorders. Australian population surveys show that up to one third of adults have regular difficulty in getting to sleep or staying asleep. Despite its frequent presentation, the management of insomnia is said to be suboptimal due to under recognition of the disorder as well as inadequate treatment strategies. This activity will help GPs understand the impact of insomnia, how to identify insomnia and how to approach treatment.
