Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

People with chronic pain and/or musculoskeletal conditions may find that their pain or condition disturbs their sleep. Getting inadequate sleep and being tired during the day can magnify symptoms such as pain. It is therefore important to understand what we can do to try to get a good night’s sleep. In this webinar Assoc. Prof. Worsnop will look at what you can put in place, and what to avoid, to help ensure the optimal environment for sleep.

Our presenter: Associate Professor Christopher Worsnop is a sleep physician at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne. He completed his PhD by thesis at the University of Melbourne studying the effects of sleep on respiratory pump muscles and upper airway muscles. He is the head of the Austin Sleep Services and has an honorary appointment in the Department of Medicine at the University of Melbourne. He also co-chairs the Respiratory Council of the Australasian Sleep Association as well as being a member of the ASA’s Insomnia Council and Behavioural Sleep Medicine group.
