“Sleep can be difficult to achieve, yet it’s critically important for families.”
Dr. Robyn Stremler’s research focuses on ways to improve sleep and health outcomes in infants, children and parents, through pregnancy and beyond. Her Sleep TYME (Throughout Your Motherhood Experience) study will determine how common sleep problems are, what factors make sleep problems more likely to occur, and if sleep problems during pregnancy affect the health of women or their babies. Dr. Stremler, who is a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) New Investigator, also examines sleep in families with an acutely or chronically ill child.
In 2011, the Canadian Sleep Society honoured Dr. Stremler with its Roger Broughton Young Investigator Award. Dr. Stremler is also an Adjunct Scientist with the Hospital for Sick Children and a Nursing Research Associate with the Hospital for Sick Children’s Centre for Nursing.
