Clinical Chronobiology: The Immune-Stress-Sleep Connection

Clinical Chronobiology: The Immune-Stress-Sleep Connection from PLMI on Vimeo.

Description: We’ve all felt the stress of the past couple of years, and patients are more ready than ever to address it. As clinicians, we need to understand how our patients’ stress is uniquely affecting their health and help them to create and implement a personalized plan to manage it. In this presentation, we’ll go beyond the HPA axis to discuss stress in the context of immune health and draw connections to the gut-brain axis. This will help you recognize the nuances in identifying and caring for patients’ individual needs and provide protocol templates you can utilize at your next appointment.

Learning objectives: Identify and assess the effects of stress and sleep on the immune system and how modifiable factors can help modulate health outcomes
Develop a stress management protocol and be able to summarize practical stress management strategies
