- •SLEEP-CF is an acceptable and feasible behavioral sleep intervention for youth with CF.
- •Results suggest some benefit related to sleep outcomes for youth with CF.
- •CF care teams are encouraged to assess sleep health and habits as a component of routine clinical care.
Youth with CF are at increased risk for physiological and behavioral sleep difficulties due to disease-specific symptoms and more general pediatric sleep challenges. Despite evidence suggesting that behavioral sleep interventions are effective for improving common sleep difficulties, no interventions exist for youth with CF. SLEEP-CF was designed to fill this gap by providing tailored, flexible behavioral sleep support to youth with CF. Results suggest that SLEEP-CF is an acceptable and feasible behavioral sleep intervention, even in a population with normative sleep habits. There may be benefit in terms of improving sleep knowledge and sleep hygiene. Technology use during and after bedtime is prevalent. CF care team members are encouraged to assess sleep as part of routine CF care, and to provide support as indicated.
