Results of our recently completed PCORI-funded comparative effectiveness study of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) and acupuncture, published in JNCI, found that both treatments reduced insomnia and that the results lasted for three months post-treatment.

This workshop brings together a team of clinicians and patient advocates to plan for how to best disseminate and implement these sleep management research findings from our study to transform research and clinical practice.

We will identify barriers, facilitators and proposed solutions to increase awareness of insomnia, access to evidence-based treatment, and support of patient-centered decision-making.

Deadline for submitting application is 11:59 pm ET, Friday, August 23, 2019.
