Background: The high prevalence of sleep problems in children and long-term consequences point to the need for early effective interventions, but health-care providers have limited training in pediatric sleep medicine. The aims of this study were therefore to assess the effectiveness of a sleep health-care education program and to develop a Turkish acronym for brief sleep history taking for pediatric primary caregivers in the ambulatory setting.
