About the Course:
Delayed Sleep-Wake Phase Disorder (DSWPD) is characterised by sleep initiation insomnia when attempting sleep at conventional times and difficulty waking at the required time for daytime commitments. Although there are published therapeutic guidelines for the administration of melatonin for DSWPD, to our knowledge, randomised controlled trials are lacking. This trial tested the efficacy of 0.5 mg melatonin, combined with behavioural sleep- wake scheduling, for improving sleep initiation in clinically diagnosed DSWPD patients with a delayed endogenous melatonin rhythm relative to patient-desired (or -required) bedtime (DBT).
This course is based on the article, Efficacy of melatonin with behavioural sleep- wake scheduling for delayed sleep-wake phase disorder: A double-blind, randomised clinical trial created by Tracey L. Sletten, PhD, et al. in 2018.
