Feature: What is Patient Advocacy and how can we help our Sleep Disorders Patients.

By Robyn Woidtke, RN, RPSGT

We all need help and support during medical situations that impact our and/or our loved one’s life.  During difficult times it is easy to feel vulnerable, alone, afraid and uncertain as to what lies ahead.  I do not think sleep disorders are any different from any other chronic condition, but it may be that absence of appropriate sleep or a sleep apnea diagnosis is still not considered significant, therefore, advocacy may not be seen as a necessary component for our patients.
