Center for Innovation in Sleep Self-Management

The Administrative Core (AC) provides the operational and financial oversight of the CISSM. This includes supporting interactions among the Cores, Pilot Project Investigators, predoctoral and postdoctoraltrainees, scientific advisory committees, and interdisciplinary colleagues inside and outside the UW SoN.

The Informatics and Patient-Centered Technologies Core (IPCT) fosters innovation and the integration of informatics methods and novel patient-centered technologies into tailored sleep self-management interventions. The IPCT Core provides investigators with expertise and resources regarding the collection, maintenance and analysis of common data elements (CDEs) in patient-reported outcomes and self-management, actigraphy, large monitoring data and other complex data sets as well as facilitates the selection of existing and the design of new patient-centered technologies focused on sleep self- management.

The Pilot Project Core (PPC) is integral to meeting the CISSM’s mission by supporting the development, implementation and dissemination of new technology to assist adults and children with chronic illness to sleep better and simultaneously improve health, well-being. The PPC provides interdisciplinary mentorship to CISSM Pilot Project Investigators on intervention design, use of CDEs, patient care technologies, and sleep self-management research in order to foster the growth of new and early stage investigators.
