Women's and Children's Health Research Seminar

Sleep disturbance in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (and their parents) - Grace Macaulay (nee Boston)

This presentation will report on the findings of two studies Grace has been involved in as part of her BMedSc(Hons) research year in the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health.

The first, builds upon the growing body of literature reporting on sleep disturbance in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). This study investigates habitual sleep and sleep state architecture in children and adolescents with T1DM, and explores interactions between glucose, glycaemic control and sleep.

The second, a qualitative study, investigates sleep disturbance in parents and caregivers providing nocturnal care to children and adolescents with T1DM. In particular, it explores the aspects of nocturnal T1DM care affecting parental sleep over time and proposed solutions to improve parental sleep and nocturnal caregiving, including the role of diabetes technology.
