Chronic Pain and Poor Sleep: Disentangling These Bedfellows to I

Chronic Pain and Poor Sleep: Disentangling These Bedfellows to Improve Public Health
Presented By: Kathi L. Heffner, PhD, Associate Professor of Nursing and Psychiatry

Many people experience both chronic pain and poor sleep, two notable public health challenges. Aging-related changes render older adults particularly vulnerable to these comorbid conditions. Although pain can disrupt sleep, more recent evidence underscores inflammation pathways linking inadequate sleep to amplified pain. This presentation will focus on related evidence from cross-sectional and behavioral sleep intervention studies of older adults. Implications for understanding pain, and advancing public health approaches to chronic pain management, will be discussed.

Assorted wraps will be available while supplies last. Bring your own beverage.
