Abstract

A major goal of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Consensus Conference held in Ponte Vedra, Florida on March 27 through 29, 2009 was to have 15 key opinion leaders provide the latest information on their areas of expertise. Those leaders represented the breadth of the behavioral sleep medicine field (pediatrics, adults, insomnia, PAP adherence, and circadian rhythm disorders) and included clinicians and researchers from a variety of settings (academia, private practice, the military, and primary care). The presentations highlighted the milestones already achieved by the field (critical mass, solid empirical base, 30C training programs, certification, dedicated journal, and dedicated textbook), as well as important future directions (more clinical research, public relations campaigns, training, and reimbursement).
