The CSS would like to share with you the launch of a new website: Sleepwell Nova Scotia

The Sleepwell Nova Scotia website was released on November 20, 2014 to the public. The goal is to make it easy for people to not only learn about cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBTI) as a treatment option but facilitate their access and involvement in a CBTI-based program.

The results are in, and the CSS would like to officially welcome Natalie Morin as the new technologist member-at-large.

Thanks to all the CSS members who cast their vote, and thank you Natalie for volunteering; we look forward to working with you!

The Canadian Sleep Society (CSS) has recently partnered with the Canadian Respiratory Journal (CRJ) with the aim to:

  • Increase the number of published manuscripts on sleep disordered breathing
  • Provide an outlet to publish CSS clinical guidelines and position papers related to respiratory aspects of sleep research
  • Allow increased interaction between the Canadian Thoracic Society (CTS) and CSS

As of January 2015, CSS members can opt to receive a complimentary copy of the CRJ and an electronic full text version. CSS members will need to indicate they wish to receive the CRJ when they renew their membership in December. Dr. John. Kimoff (Montreal) has been appointed Deputy Editor and Drs. Robert Skomro (Saskatoon) and Marta Kaminska (Montreal) have been appointed the Associate Editors responsible for manuscripts related to sleep disordered breathing. Dr. John Fleetham (Vancouver) and Dr. Manisha Witmans (Edmonton) are the new CSS appointed members of the CRJ Editorial Board. 

CSS members are strongly encouraged to submit original articles, clinical trials, review articles and case reports concerning different aspects of sleep disordered breathing to the CRJ.
