Slide 18 - Results In our study, most commonly used interventions were watching TV or listening to the radio, or reading Pain medications were the most commonly used form of medication highlighting the impact of pain as a contributing factor to insomnia in the elderly Of particular concern, nearly half of all subjects who used alcohol or over-the-counter sleeping aids had not told this to their health care provider

Slide 20 - Discussion Wide array of treatment options used by elders for the management of their insomnia High usage rates of several treatments highlights the importance of inquiring about the broad range of treatment choices made by older adults as they seek to address their sleep complaints
Slide 21 - Discussion Some elderly patients are trying up to 13 different treatments
Slide 22 - Discussion Response rate may be affected by participants may have become discouraged by the end and chosen not to fill out additional questionnaire Patients may have underreported negatively viewed activities or treatments such as alcohol, smoking, or even medications

Slide 24 - Discussion As Healthcare providers we must be asking our patients about their sleep patterns If they are having disturbances we must ask what if any self-treatment activities they are engaging in
