Les difficultés de sommeil sont fréquentes chez les hommes atteints d’un cancer de la prostate. Les effets secondaires de certains traitements (p. ex., hormonothérapie) peuvent aggraver l’insomnie en causant des symptômes comme les bouffées de chaleur et les difficultés urinaires nocturnes. Il est bon de savoir cependant que vous n’avez pas à supporter ces symptômes, il existe des méthodes thérapeutiques et d’autocontrôle pour vous aider.

Dans ce webinaire de L’Angle de l’expert, soyez des nôtres pour entendre Dre Savard parler de la thérapie cognitive-comportementale, de la modification des habitudes de sommeil et des croyances envers l’insomnie pour vous redonner la maîtrise de votre sommeil.
