A 'digital bridge' for clinicians and health consumers
Our GMU team aims to improve interprofessional communication in primary care for chronic insomnia, via an ongoing course-based health communication campaign (Share CBT-I).
Our team promotes the American College of Physicians 2016 Clinical Guideline for adult chronic insomnia assisting clinicians to strive for a 100% referral rate to CBT-I (the best non-drug treatment), via a shared digital bridge (Insomnia Hub). As well, we aim to improve dissemination of CBT-I research (and where to find services) to health consumers.
The team will develop and test a new open ‘digital bridge’ (the Insomnia Hub) - via Share CBT-I - by which any clinician can easily and effectively inform and refer health consumers to the most trusted CBT-I help. 'Share CBT-I' will ultimately combine (1) a brief online tutorial for how to conduct the referral, and (2) a curated and crowdsourced knowledge-sharing platform, provided by ON, enabling healthcare faculty and students (anywhere) to share what they know about CBT-I and where to find it - interprofessionally.
