Short Bio:

Activity: In 2023, we conducted a study on the sleep of medical and paramedical staff. More than 800 people participated, and the study showed that the majority were sleep-deprived or had symptoms of undiagnosed sleep disorders. Therefore, for this year, we decided to target medical staff to raise awareness about the importance of good sleep for both health and quality of life, as well as professional performance. We organized a webinar for World Sleep Day, where we presented the results of our study, literature data on the complications of poor sleep hygiene, and recommendations for improving sleep and vigilance. Part of the presentation focused on managing naps during shifts. The last part was dedicated to questions and answers. We also drafted a document summarizing the study data and practical recommendations, which we shared on social media.
