Short Bio:

Activity: “Sleep Jeopardy” will be an engaging and interactive educational game designed to enhance the knowledge of office staff, residents and providers on various aspects of sleep. Here’s a general outline of the plan:
Sleep Jeopardy Game Plan:
The game will follow the traditional Jeopardy format with different categories and questions of varying difficulty levels.
. Sleep Disorders:
• Questions related to common sleep disorders (e.g., insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy).
. Treatment Options:
• Information about different treatments and interventions for sleep-related issues.
. Sleep Hygiene:
• Questions focusing on healthy sleep habits and practices.
. Importance of Sleep:
• Emphasizing the significance of good quality sleep for overall health and well-being.
. Fun Facts:
• Entertaining facts and trivia related to sleep.

Participants: Participants will include any employee of the practice. They will need to wear a pajama during the session. They will form teams. Each team will include a provider, a nurse, a medical assistant and 1-2 clerical employees.

Game Rules:
• Each team selects a category and point value.
• A question is presented, and the team has to answer within a specified time.
• Correct answers earn points, while incorrect answers result in point deductions.
• The team with the highest score at the end wins.
Interactive Elements:
. Visuals:
• Incorporate visuals like infographics, diagrams, or animations to enhance understanding.
. Discussion Rounds:
• Allow brief discussions after each question to encourage knowledge sharing.
. Scenario-based Questions:
• Include scenarios relevant to office settings to make the game more relatable.
We will be offering small incentives or prizes for the winning team to add excitement and motivation.
An expert on sleep health or a facilitator with knowledge in the field can host the game, providing additional insights and explanations.
Encourage participants to apply the knowledge gained in their daily routines and provide additional resources for further learning.
By combining education with an entertaining format, “Sleep Jeopardy” aims to make learning about sleep enjoyable and memorable for office staff and providers.
