Clinical Sleep Centers
The Sleep Medicine Center at Harborview is a state-of-the-art facility whose providers treat a breadth of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia, restless leg syndrome/periodic limb movement disorder and circadian rhythm abnormalities.
We provide multidisciplinary assessment, treatment, and follow-up consultation services for patients with suspected or diagnosed sleep-related problems. We offer all current treatment options depending on each patient’s needs.
Seattle Children’s has the only sleep center in the region dedicated to caring for babies, children and teens. We perform all our sleep studies in a lab specially designed to accommodate children. Our facility is located in Bellevue, and is part of Seattle Children’s at Overlake Medical Tower. We have designed the lab so that you or another adult family member has a place to stay with your child during the overnight sleep test.
The Office for Nursing Research (ONR) supports the UW School of Nursing’s research mission to advance nursing science.
The goal is to increase public knowledge of how adequate sleep and treatment of sleep disorders improve health, productivity, wellness, quality of life, and safety on roads and in the workplace. Contains an overview of sleep issues, objectives for sleep health, interventions & resources, and prevalence of sleep issues.
PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) is a set of person-centered measures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children. It can be used with the general population and with individuals living with chronic conditions.
The long-term goal of the Healthy Sleep Project is to promote improved sleep health in the U.S. The project will increase public awareness of the importance of healthy sleep. It also will promote the treatment and prevention of sleep disorders.
The Healthy Sleep Project focuses on the sleep health topic area of Healthy People 2020. This plan is a 10-year agenda to improve the nation’s health. The sleep health objectives are to:
- Increase the medical evaluation of people with symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea
- Reduce vehicular crashes due to drowsy driving
- Increase the rate of U.S. teens and adults who get sufficient sleep
The Healthy Sleep Project involves a partnership between the AASM, CDC and Sleep Research Society.
Common data elements (CDEs) are used in clinical research, patient registries, and other human subject research in order to improve data quality and opportunities for comparison and combination of data from multiple studies and with electronic health records.
