European Insomnia Network (EIN)

The European Insomnia Network devoted its main efforts to the development of European Guidelines on the diagnosis and therapy of insomnia disorders. More than 25 members of the network coming from more than 20 European countries worked together on this project. The guideline was primarily based on the German Insomnia Guideline which was released early in January 2017 by Dieter Riemann and the German Sleep Society. Fifteen researchers and clinicians from all of Europe met in Frankfurt on March 31, 2017 in order to discuss the European Insomnia Guideline. Now the document is finished and has been submitted to the Journal of Sleep Research. The document has been endorsed by the board of the ESRS and the Executive Committee of the ANSS.
