Pediatricians need more sleep disorder training

It's bad enough that most of us don't seek medical advice when suffering from insomnia. Perhaps even worse is the fact that in a randomized sample of pediatricians, only 18% had received any formal training in sleep disorders.

Sleep deprivation and other sleep disorders in children need to be taken more seriously - it's no good encouraging parents to seek advice when their children aren't sleeping if pediatricians haven't received any formal sleep disorder training.

On a more positive note, 96% of pediatricians who responded to the survey stated that counseling parents about healthy sleep was important. This is particularly encouraging since too much medication is being prescribed to children and even over-the-counter meds for childhood insomnia can be dangerous.

Let's hope that formal sleep disorder training becomes more common amongst pediatricians as we continue to fight for more insomnia education and awareness.
