Share CBT-I

"A 'digital bridge' for clinicians and health consumers"

A team of GMU faculty and students, with onAir Networks (ON), aims to improve interprofessional communication in primary care for chronic insomnia, via an ongoing course-based health communication campaign, 'Share CBT-I'.

We strive to make it easier for clinicians to find and refer CBT-I help for patients with adult chronic insomnia, using the Insomnia Hub - like a shared digital bridge. As well, on the Hub, we aim to improve dissemination of CBT-I research (and where to find services) to health consumers.

George Mason Communication faculty and students have participated in many course-based pilots - testing the use of service-learning and Health Hubs to promote science to the public - for several years.

Here, we spotlight 4 pilots and some of their products ... Share CBT-I, March Madness for Total Health, and an mHealth

Tens of millions in the U.S. struggle with insomnia and yet few doctors refer to CBT-I (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia), a behavioral therapy that the American College of Physicians says should be the first-line treatment.

Our online streaming chats will feature CBT-I specialists who will share all the ways to get affordable, accessible CBT-I - anywhere. This introductory episode explains how we hope to go forward with future shows.
