Test CBT-I Broadcast

Test post in preparation for CBT-I broadcasts.

Tens of millions in the U.S. struggle with insomnia and yet few doctors refer to CBT-I (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia), a therapy that has a 70 – 80% success rate for promoting sound sleep. Our online streaming chats will feature CBT-I specialists who will share all the ways to get affordable, accessible CBT-I – anywhere.

Were you taught to share?

In the Knowledge Economy, information networks are like the new super highways of the industrial economy (Tapscott, 1996) and ‘sharing’ is the new coin of the realm. Networked patients tell their stories on Sharing Mayo Clinic. The Cleveland Clinic attracts over a million health consumers each month to its Health Hub. And, @SeattleMamaDoc has over 33,000 followers.

But, imagine if the best health information wasn’t trapped in silos. What if it was curated by learners who were taught in ONE place – interprofessionally – to use social media to drive consumer demand toward evidence-based practices? We propose creating ONE (Open Networked Education) Social Practicum to teach us all how to share together – to measurably improve public health.

Referring patients – module #1

Video #1: (roughly 4 - 5 minutes) Psychiatrist demonstrates how to refer to the Insomnia Hub, using motivational interviewing with a student role-playing a patient who simply wants sleeping pills for insomnia

Role playing patients – module #2

Video #2: (roughly 3 minutes) Psychiatrist demonstrates (with student role-playing a patient) to the patient how to navigate through the Hub to show the various resources (e.g., success stories, broadcast comparing 3 App's, how to find local CBT-Insomnia trained clinics and clinicians in the Directory, etc.)

Patient follow-up – module #3

Video #3: (roughly 2 minutes) Psychiatrist demonstrates follow-up with the 'patient' at next visit to determine status (e.g., look at patient's App data)
