Researchers at Flinders University are running a research study to test a new online 5-week insomnia treatment program.
Insomnia symptoms are a very common problem in Australia. Symptoms include difficulties falling asleep, difficulties maintaining sleep, early morning awakenings from sleep, and feelings of fatigue, daytime functioning difficulties. The best treatment for insomnia is a non-drug therapy called "Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)". However, there are very few clinicians in Australia that have the skills and expertise in CBT-I delivery. Therefore, we have developed an online 5-session CBT-I program.
This study aims to test the effectiveness of this new online CBT-I program, compared to sleep education control, in improving sleep and daytime functioning in people with insomnia.
Study inclusion criteria:
- Current insomnia symptoms
- At least 18 years old
- Not a shift worker
- Not currently pregnant
- No co-morbid sleep disorder
