Digital CBT for insomnia
Luik AI., Espie CA.
Complaints of insomnia are common, yet provision of the recommended treatment, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), is limited. In this chapter we discuss how a digital medicine approach, in the form of CBT delivered by web or mobile (dCBT), could have a transformative impact on insomnia care provision by enabling universal implementation of clinical guidelines for the treatment of insomnia, with consequent improvement in patient outcomes, and patient and clinician satisfaction. We summarize the evidence that supports the potential of dCBT as an evidence-based intervention for insomnia and illustrate ways to advance the implementation of digital medicine for the treatment of insomnia.
