As Director of Cognitive Behavioral Sleep Medicine at the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center, Feona Barwick sees a wide variety of patients with sleep and circadian disorders, a percentage of whom have chronic pain. She also has colleagues at the Stanford Chronic Pain Management Clinic who see patients with various chronic pain conditions, nearly all of whom have sleep problems. Given the significant comorbidity of these two conditions, Dr. Barwick and her colleagues decided to review the studies that report on efforts to treat both conditions simultaneously in preparation for developing her own integrated protocol to address co-occurring chronic pain and insomnia.
