Episode 281: Bedtime restriction instead of pills for primary insomnia

In episode 281, James and Mike welcome back our friend and colleague Bruce Arroll to talk about a great study he and his colleagues recently completed looking at simple bedtime restriction for the treatment of primary insomnia – and the results were pretty impressive. So much so that Bruce had to wake us both up at the end of the podcast.

Show notes

1) Development, validation (diagnostic accuracy) and audit of the Auckland Sleep Questionnaire: a new tool for diagnosing causes of sleep disorders in primary care

2) A double-blind randomised controlled study of a brief intervention of bedtime restriction for adult patients with primary insomnia
