14-05-2021Insomnia is the most prevalent sleep-wake disorder, with about one in ten individuals meeting diagnostic criteria.

14-05-2021CONCLUSION: This study suggests that CBMP therapy may be associated with an improvement in health-related quality-of-life outcomes as self-reported by patients. CBMPs are also demonstrated to be relatively safe in the short to medium-term. These findings must be treated with caution given the limited scope of this initial analysis, with no placebo or an active comparator, with further research required.
