Tiredness is often regarded as a fact of life, but it’s actually far from normal and can be related to issues such as stress, sleep problems and poor diet. If not dealt with effectively, tiredness can have a profound effect on physical and mental health, as well as work, relationships and, ultimately, quality of life.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand what causes tiredness and the people who are more likely to suffer from it
  • Be aware of the negative impact of tiredness on general health
  • Know which treatment and self care options are available
  • Know when to refer to the pharmacist.
