Talking About Baby Sleep:
Improving Sleep Outcomes in Infancy

Presenter: Robyn Stremler, RN, PhD, Associate Professor, Director, PhD Program, Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing

“Sleep can be difficult to achieve, yet it’s critically important for families.”

Dr. Stremler is a nurse scientist whose research is aimed at improving sleep and related health outcomes in infants, children and parents, through pregnancy and beyond. She is an Associate Professor and Director, PhD Program, at the University of Toronto in the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing and an Adjunct Scientist at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). Dr. Stremler’s past clinical care activities include staff nurse positions in various maternal and newborn care and sleep clinic settings. In 2011, the Canadian Sleep Society honoured Dr. Stremler with its Roger Broughton Young Investigator Award. Dr. Stremler holds an Early Researcher Award from the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation.

Dr. Stremler’s presentation will address factors affecting infant sleep, infant sleep interventions, and related health outcomes.  Results from interventional and observational studies will be presented to facilitate discussion of influences on infant sleep, including maternal sleep behaviours and cognitions, maternal depressive symptomatology, and infant sleep location.
