GUEST EDITORIAL What more can we learn about sleep education programs in young people?It has been clearly documented in the paediatric and sleep medicine literature and in recognised bodies [1 e3], that sleep health has become an important public health issue and more importantly that young people worldwide face challenges in achieving and maintaining enough sleep. Increasing awareness about the importance of sleep, the effects of poor sleep heath and preventative and/or treatment modalities for improving sleep health have been largely delivered through school based sleep education pro-grams which have been reviewed and critiqued over recent years[4-6]. These reviews suggest several areas in which sleep education programs need to improve. The current issue of Sleep Medicine Reviews contains two papers of interest both of which present some existing and some new perspectives on the challenges of delivering sleep education to our young people [7,8].
