It is impossible to overestimate the importance of sleep. Adequate sleep is required for normal immune and hormonal function as well as for the clearance of Alzheimer-related proteins from the brain. But sleep plays its most critical role in supporting offline memory processing. Sleep contributes to the stabilization and strengthening of memories. It also supports the selective retention of emotional memories, the extraction of the gist of a learning session, and the discovery of the rules governing a complex probabilistic game. Dreams can reflect this ongoing memory processing, and dream content can predict subsequent memory improvement. Dreaming, as a conscious experience, may also play an important role in discovering connections among our manifold memories. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on February 7, 2020, and they are subject to change as new information is published.

This presentation will provide an overview of the scientific evidence supporting the utility of exercise in maintaining health and decreasing the risk of chronic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, cancer, coronary heart disease, depression. In addition, we will review the evidence showing that exercise can mitigate the risk incurred by diseases like diabetes and hypertension. Then we will discuss a practical approach for discussing exercise with patients/clients and helping patients achieve successful outcomes with lifestyle modification.
This podcast will provide an update on the medical literature and practice guidelines pertaining to exercise. Participants will deepen their understanding of the physical and mental health benefits of exercise and will examine the evidence for a variety of common approaches to exercise (cardiovascular, strength training, high intensity interval training). Barriers to participation in exercise regimens – both for patients and providers – will be explored.
Lifestyle management has proven effective for addressing modifiable health risks, but can be challenging for patients to implement and maintain. This session will focus on wellness coaching as an important component of healthy living, both for patients and providers. Participants will learn about the benefits of engaging patients in health and wellness coaching, and will discuss strategies for incorporating this practice into their own patient care setting(s).
