2017 Fall Dinner

The CNS Board is delighted to announce our program for the annual Fall Dinner.

Chronic Insomnia: Evolving Pharmacologic and Non-Pharmacologic Treatment Options
Presented by Robert Glidewell, Psy.D., CBSM

Our growing body of knowledge surrounding chronic insomnia has significant implications for the conceptualization, diagnosis, and management of this condition. This presentation will explore current evidence supporting conceptualization of chronic insomnia as a comorbid rather than secondary condition. We will also explore the evolving healthcare environment supporting pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management of chronic insomnia respectively. This will include reviewing evidence regarding efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. We will look at evidence describing the role of chronic insomnia in the course of select medical and psychiatric conditions.

Dr. Glidewell serves as the Director of The Insomnia Clinic. He also is on staff as a clinical psychologist within the Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine at National Jewish Health South Denver.
