CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

Are you having trouble
with your sleep?

We're looking for participants for research on
an Insomnia Treatment Program

(It takes about 10 minutes to complete the survey.)

Research Overview

Tranq Sleep Care is performing a research study using a new digital Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia program (dCBT-I), led by Dr. Wayne Lai. 

This program is entirely self-guided and consists of 8 modules using video and illustrations to help patients understand their insomnia, as well as exercises to help them evaluate and reflect on their sleep patterns and behaviours. Participants are asked to complete a sleep diary to track their results over time and use sleep restriction therapy.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia has patients evaluate how they think, act, and sleep. By tracking sleep patterns with a sleep diary, restructuring thoughts and behaviours, and learning about the physiology of sleep and stimulus control, patients learn to improve their sleeping habits. In fact, some 70-80% of patients report improvements after CBTI-I[i],[ii],[iii] and it is recommended by the American College of Physicians as a first-line approach.[iv] The newer digital CBT-I has been shown to be an effective of form of treatment too.[v]

If you would like to register for this free program and enroll in our study, please fill out our survey and contact form here.
