Sleep Medicine: New Resources

Nearly half of all children have trouble sleeping at some point in their lives. Seattle Children’s Sleep Medicine Clinic has new tools for community providers to share with families, linked below. Additionally, the Sleep Clinic will be sending FaxBacks for every referral received to help better triage patients and get them resources while they are waiting. Providers will also have the option to send their patient straight to a sleep study and bypass Sleep Clinic, if they feel it is clinically indicated. This may help reduce the patient wait time.
