Management of comorbid insomnia.

[No authors listed]

Abstract

Many patients with primary medical or psychiatric disorders may be at risk for the development of comorbid insomnia. Research now suggests that effective treatment and management of the comorbid insomnia may be as important as the primary disorder--especially when the relationship between the two disorders is complex. Advanced practice nurses, in particular nurse practitioners and even professional nurses are well positioned by the nature of their educational preparation to assess for sleep disorders. Insomnia is an insidious illness. It deserves to be properly treated and every individual and patient, no matter their health state, deserves a good night's rest.
