Kalmbach and colleagues recently investigated racial disparities in engagement with and response to digital cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) in pregnant women with insomnia.
1Non-Hispanic Black women were more likely to discontinue digital CBT-I before receiving an adequate dose (ie, 4 sessions) compared with non-Hispanic White women. Further, White women reported larger reductions in insomnia symptom severity, which persisted after adjusting for engagement. Of note, racial disparities in engagement were specific to digital CBT-I; the authors found no disparities in engagement with their control condition, a sleep education program.
