Sleep in adults aged 60 - 80 years in Western Australia

What is the research question?

This study will examine sleep in adults aged 60 - 80 years residing in Western Australia. We are looking for people both with and without insomnia.

What will the participants be expected to do?

We ask you to fill in an online questionnaire, wear a wrist sleep watch over four nights, and to complete a free online sleep programme. Once you have confirmed that you have completed the programme, we would like you to wear the wrist sleep watch again and to fill in a questionnaire. You can complete all tasks from your home.

What benefits will participants receive?

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about their sleep. The course will provide you with useful information and helpful tools about healthy sleep, so you may still find it beneficial, even if you are a good sleeper.

Who is eligible to participate?

Individuals aged 60 - 80 years with or without insomnia, who live in Western Australia.
