Description

Professor Colin Espie,

Waking up to the power of sleep: evidence-based solutions for insomnia

Wednesday 23 October 2019, 5.30 - 8 pm, Stephen Langton Building, Lecture Theatre.

The Lincoln Institute for Advanced Studies is delighted to host Professor Colin Espie in his public lecture "Waking up to the power of sleep: evidence-based solutions for insomnia"

Sleep like oxygen, food, and water, is a “need to have, not a nice to have”. Yet 1 in 20 of the population struggles with getting to sleep or staying asleep, and 1 in 10 meet clinical criteria for an insomnia disorder. This talk summarises the importance of sleep and its relationship with physical and mental health; and focuses on what actually works to solve the all too common problem of insomnia.

Colin Espie BSc, MAppSci, PhD, DSc, FBPsS, CPsychol, CSci is the Professor of Sleep Medicine at the University of Oxford where he directs patient-related research and clinical training in the Sleep & Circadian Neurosciences Institute. He is internationally known for his work on insomnia treatment. He has published over 250 scientific papers and several textbooks and has made many television appearances in documentary series on sleep disorders. He also co-founded Big Health, who developed the insomnia treatment SleepioTM that is now becoming more widely available in the NHS.
