Welcome to the Study
Welcome and thank you for joining the Sleep Well Be Well study. We want to give families the knowledge and skills to help them manage their child's sleep problem(s). So, we have developed the Sleep Well Be Well mobile app and online sleep guide. To help us understand if these are effective in reducing child sleep problems, we are asking you to try one or both of these digital interventions. Then, in 5 weeks' time, we will ask you some questions about your child's sleep and your experience using the app and/or online sleep guide. To help you decide which digital intervention is best for you, please read below.
The Sleep Well Be Well mobile app
The mobile app provides step-by-step guidance to manage common childhood sleep problems. The app includes two key features:
The Sleep Check asks you a series of questions to help identify the type of sleep problem(s) your child is experiencing.
Your Plan/My Strategies
Based on your responses in the Sleep Check you will be recommended one or more strategies to help manage your child's sleep problem(s). The Strategies are broken down into daily tasks. You will receive:
- daily alerts to remind you to complete tasks; and
- motivational messages to keep you on track.
Online Sleep Guide
The online sleep guide is great option if you already have a good idea of the cause of your child's sleep problems and want to jump straight to the sleep strategies. In addition it can easily be accessed from a laptop, desktop computer, phone or tablet.
You can choose from a list of common sleep problems and download a pdf of the appropriate sleep strategy to help manage your child's sleep problem.
What if I want to use BOTH the mobile app and the online sleep guide?
You can use both. The content is similar across the mobile app and online sleep guide.
Who do I contact if there is a technical problem with the mobile app or online sleep guide?
Please contact the study team via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (03) 9936 6064.
Who do I contact if I am still having trouble with my child's sleep problem?
