2047: Sleep Impairment and Insomnia in Adults Living with Sickle Cell Disease: A Retrospective Chart Review of Clinical and Psychological Indicators; Fostering Intra-Professional Collaboration: The APNA Janssen Scholars Workplace Violence Workgroup
This research on sleep impairment in the adult sickle cell patient begins to explore the possible etiologies/contributing factors of sleep impairment. Screening, assessment and intervention in sleep impairment can improve quality of life. The role of the Mental Health CNS in integrated physical and mental health care of the adult sickle cell patient will be emphasized.
Creation of workgroups can be difficult when trying to work with individuals across the country. Effective workgroups can be created utilizing APNA members and resources. The results of these groups can be a gain in personal knowledge, institutional changes, and wider dissemination of knowledge.
