The COLFHT hosted a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia Practitioner’s workshop in partnership with the Northeast Specialized Geriatric Centre. Insomnia is the single most commonly reported health problem in adults. In addition to hands-on training in the basics of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for insomnia, the workshop covered whether adjustments to CBT may be necessary in the context of medical and mental health, as well as geriatric patients. Attendees included COLFHT physicians and clinical staff as well as other community practitioners. Funding for the event was provided by the Northeast LHIN.
