SYNOPSIS
Sleep is critical for child health and well-being. The reality in today’s society is that many children, especially children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs), are not getting enough sleep to optimize their daytime functioning. Also, tired children can have a negative impact on the entire family. This presentation will provide an overview of sleep needs, sleep problems, the impact of not getting enough sleep, and what can be done to help children with NDDs sleep better. Dr. Corkum will share information about the development and upcoming randomized controlled trial of Better Nights, Better Days for Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders (BNBD-NDD); an eHealth intervention developed by a pan-Canadian team of pediatric sleep and NDD experts.

 

Researchers from UBC (Dr. Nick Bansback) and the University of Calgary (Dr. Sachin Pendharkar) are recruiting patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea to participate in a patient survey.

Patients and clinicians who wish to learn more can visit the CSS Research Participation page.  The survey is available in French and English. / Le sondage est disponible en français et en anglais.

The survey is funded by the Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network and aims:

• To see how health service delivery and costs for sleep apnea differ regionally; and
• To identify barriers to optimal sleep apnea diagnosis and management in Canada.
