What Matters to You in Sleep Apnea Research?

Have your say in setting research priorities for sleep apnea treatment


The Respiratory Research Centre at the University of Saskatchewan is looking to better understand the questions people in Saskatchewan have about obstructive sleep apnea. These questions could be about treatment, or day-to-day management of sleep apnea.

Treatment options for obstructive sleep apnea may include:

  • CPAP
  • Weight management
  • Surgery
  • Other lifestyle changes

If you have sleep apnea, your family members does, or you are a clinician who cares for people with sleep apnea, we want your help in setting the priorities for sleep apnea research in Saskatchewan.  Your answers to this survey will help researchers and research funding organizations better identify what is important to people living with sleep apnea and incorporate their priorities when planning future projects.

This priority setting process follows the methods of the James Lind Alliance (UK) and is being funded by the Respiratory Research Centre. It is led by a steering committee that includes patient advocates, patient advocacy group representatives, clinicians, and healthcare professionals working with persons who have obstructive sleep apnea.

This is an opportunity for you to lend your expertise from your own personal experience, and have your say in setting obstructive sleep apnea research priorities.
