Understanding Sleep: Don’t Hit Snooze on Your Health

This free e-learning course was created in collaboration with The Sleep Geek and supported by Silentnight, official sleep partner of RSPH.

The programme adopts a preventative approach and will provide useful information, relevant to all members of the general public, around the link between sleep and health and wellbeing.

This eLearning programme aims to confront this issue by empowering the public with knowledge and understanding on a broad range of sleep issues including: sleep as a public health issue, melatonin, drugs and alcohol, sleep and culture, and sleep disorders.
