Abstract

Cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) has emerged as the first-line treatment for chronic insomnia but remains massively underused relative to the prevalence of insomnia disorder. This article focuses on 3 key issues in the delivery of CBT-I in the real world. First, where and how should CBT-I be delivered and who should deliver it? Second, who is an appropriate candidate for CBT-I? Third, how do you measure quality care with CBT-I? These issues give rise to targets for future research aimed at improving the implementation science of CBT-I in the real world.
