Screening midlife women for sleep problems: Why, how, and who should get a referral?
Lee, Kathryn & Anderson, Debra J. (2015) Screening midlife women for sleep problems: Why, how, and who should get a referral? Menopause, 22(7), pp. 783-785.
Advancements in sleep medicine have been escalating ever since research began appearing in the 1950s. As with most early clinical trials, women were excluded from participation. Even if researchers included women or addressed sex differences by age, reproductive stage was seldom considered. Recently, there has been an exponential increase in research on sleep in midlife and older women. This Practice Pearl briefly reviews the importance of adequate sleep, clinical assessment for sleep disorders, and guidelines for practice.
