Efficient Screening for Cognitive Disorders in Primary Care and the Assessment and Treatment of Sleep Problems in Primary Care (3 CE’s)

Presented by Wayne Hoye, Ph.D.

October 9th,  1:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Instructional Level

Intermediate — Builds upon the learner’s foundational knowledge, familiarity with the literature and/or experience in a content area. Programming at this level includes more depth than at a beginning level program. It could also serve as a refresher course for individuals who have background in a content area and are interested in learning more contemporary applications.

Course Description and Target Audience

This presentation will describe an efficient protocol for the screening of cognitive disorders in the primary care setting. The screening process is evidence-based and superior to the methods most commonly used in primary care. The second part of this presentation will address sleep problems in integrated primary care. The identification and assessment of sleep problems and the use of brief behavioral interventions will be discussed. The primary focus will be on insomnia with some attention to identifying other causes of sleep disruption.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians etc). Limitations and risks will be discussed in terms of the interpretation of cognitive screening data, including the modification established cutoffs to improve accuracy as supported by research.
