Are You An Adult With Insomnia

by Lorraine A (follow)
Being parents of young children often means that our quality of sleep is affected in some way or another, whether that's feeding a newborn several times a night, or getting up to children who need to go to the toilet, are sick or can't settle.

However, what if your lack of sleep is caused by more than just interruptions from your children? Perhaps you suffer from insomnia?


With sleep being one of the most important factors for our overall health, physical and mental well-being, it's so important to get on top of any sleep issues for the benefit of not only ourselves, but for that of our families.

Do you need an updated family portrait?
If you have a bed partner and suffer from insomnia, then you might be the perfect candidate to take part in the Monash University's Circadian Medicine Laboratory research project that aims to improve the effectiveness of insomnia treatments and to find out whether having a partner affects a person's sleep in any way.

What's involved?
Completion of questionnaires and interviews.
One overnight stay at the Monash sleep lab.
Seven weekly one hour insomnia treatment sessions (either by yourself or with a partner)
A follow-up session six months later
Monitoring of your sleep/wake cycles.

To be involved in the study you need to:
Be experiencing insomnia.
Have a stable bed partner that is happy to be involved in the study.
Have no untreated sleep disorders apart from insomnia.
Be aged 18 years or older.
Be fluent in English.

You will receive all study-related care at no charge.

You will be rewarded for your time for completing all of the non-treatment parts of the study such as questionnaires (up to $260 for you and up to $120 for your partner).

If you are interested in participating in the Insomnia study or would like more information, please visit our website:www.med.monash.edu.au/base/volunteer.html#sleep, contact us by email: base.rest@monash.edu or Ph: 9905 5912.
