Synopsis

This project will test the feasibility of the community pharmacy as a screening site for sleep disorders. Positive results from this study can be used to design a rigorous randomised controlled trial that can test the community pharmacist as a provider of screening tests for sleep disorders, as well as specialised sleep health services.

As many patients visit their pharmacy for various reasons more frequently than other primary care sites, the use of this venue for health promotion and screening for sleep disorders has the potential of a cost effective mechanism to identify and treat patients at risk of sleep disorders.

Additional Information
