Webinar topic

The label of “bad sleeper” is given away freely to service users, either by themselves or by their family or professionals in their care. Despite individual differences in sleep needs and patterns, every service user is able to achieve healthy sleep with the right support.

In this webinar we invite professionals to consider the variety of external factors that influence their service users’ sleep. The webinar will discuss our own attitudes and perceptions around sleep as well as how to challenge the stigma of “bad sleepers” for people of all ages, health and ability.

About the webinar

This webinar is suitable for professionals who work service users of all ages, in a health, social care or third sector role. Previous training in sleep is not required to join.

The webinar is an informal topical discussion and does not form part of the Sleep Scotland training programme. It does not, in isolation, equip the attendees to provide sleep advice. To become a certified sleep practitioner please see our training courses.

Due to our funding agreements as a charity, we are unable to accept delegates who work in for-profit organisations or private practitioners to this session.
