Title: Sleep in Canadian Children and their parents during the COVID-19 crisis: Findings from a rapid response mixed methods study
Dr. Elizabeth Keys is a registered nurse with a clinical background in community and public health nursing focused on promoting child and family wellbeing in the community. The goal of her emerging program of research is to promote and maintain infant and parental mental health by supporting parent-child interactions and sleep health using innovative models of care, such as eHealth and precision health. Dr. Keys completed her PhD in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary, where she developed and evaluated a home visiting parent-child interaction intervention designed to improve infant sleep. She is currently completing an interdisciplinary CIHR and honorary Killam postdoctoral fellowship at Dalhousie University in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, with Adjunct positions in the School of Nursing, Dalhousie University and the Faculty of Nursing, University of Calgary. Her postdoctoral research will develop a user-centered and evidence-based eHealth infant sleep intervention.
Nicole MacKenzie is a second year PhD student in Clinical Psychology at Dalhousie University, where she is supervised by Dr. Christine Chambers. She completed her BA in Early Childhood Studies at Ryerson University and an MEd in Developmental Psychology at the University of Toronto. Stemming from her research and volunteer experiences in pediatric health settings, her research interests within pediatric pain include interventions for procedure pain management and how knowledge translation can improve families’ access to evidence-based practices for pain management. Her current research is focused on understanding how parents engage with and use KT interventions to better facilitate the uptake of evidence-based strategies to better manage children’s pain.
Learning Objectives:
1. To characterize sleep changes and difficulties in typically developing children with a history of insomnia during the COVID-19 pandemic
2. To understand the factors associated with changes in children’s sleep during the COVID-19 pandemic
3. To identify parents’ needs for additional support to address in future interventions to promote healthy sleep for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic
