Sleep and circadian disorders are increasingly recognised as prevalent in Australia, with serious health, societal and economic consequences. Common disorders include obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)and insomnia. Service provision for these two conditions is a potential role for pharmacy. In the case of OSA, pharmacists can provide services through the continuum from screening to ongoing management. Similarly in the case of insomnia, current evidence suggests that behavioural treatments are as effective as sedatives and certainly safer.
