Sleep Health Foundation Research Grant Program Request for Expressions of Interest for Project on “Reducing Sleep Disruption in Carers”
This is a call for EOIs from institutions (e.g. Universities) to undertake a research project conducted on behalf of the Sleep Health Foundation, with funding provided by Carers Australia (CA).
Purpose and Outcomes
The research will (1) systematically gather and review the evidence-based literature on the extent, causes and consequences of sleep disruption among (unpaid) carers and (2) develop fact sheets to convey useful information about sleep issues to carers. The latter will be informed by the literature review. The deliverables must readily allow CA to deliver online information to carers and develop strategies and recommendations that aim to
- reduce the sleep disruption of carers through identifying practical ways carers can manage their caring to maximise healthy sleep routines;
- mitigate the short, medium and long term health consequences of poor sleep for carers; and
- advance their advocacy work with government
