PSA is partnering with the Australian Sleep Association (ASA), the Sleep Health Foundation and the University of Sydney to increase the knowledge and skills of pharmacists on insomnia and sleep health through The Quality Use of Medicines for Insomnia and Sleep Health (QUMISH) program.

 

The objectives of the program are to specifically look at the prescribing and dispensing of medicines used to treat insomnia/sleep health. The program will also focus other strategies to manage insomnia, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I).
