In this seminar Drs. Handa and Williamson will introduce the most common pediatric sleep problems seen in outpatient primary and specialty care sites. Common concerns include both behaviorally-based sleep problems (e.g., insomnia and poor sleep health) and medically-based sleep disorders (e.g., sleep disordered breathing). The speakers will identify brief assessment strategies to help guide differential diagnosis and treatment planning. The speakers will additionally discuss evidence-based sleep management approaches that can be practically applied in outpatient care, as well as additional resources for families and clinicians.
