Study

SLEEP, HEALTH, AND WELLNESS PROJECT

2009-2011

The Sleep, Health, and Wellness Project consists of two studies; the Sleep, Health, and Wellness Laboratory Study and the Sleep, Health, and Wellness Ambulatory Study.

To obtain a detailed picture of how we react to both chronic and acute stress, participants will be asked to participate in both studies over two days.

On Day 1, you will be asked to complete the Sleep, Health, and Wellness Laboratory Study. For this study, you will be asked to attend a laboratory session in the research laboratories in Cois Abhann. Here you will be asked to complete some brief computer tasks while we monitor your blood pressure. You will also be asked to give some saliva samples during this time. The laboratory study will take up no more than 1 hour of your time. For further information, please see the webpages outlining this study on your right.

On Day 2, we will ask you to return to the research laboratories before you start work to be connected to the ambulatory blood pressure monitor. If this is not possible, we can meet you at your workplace. You can then continue with the rest of your day as normal, while wearing the blood pressure monitor. We will also ask you to collect some saliva samples at various times during the day and to complete a short activity diary. At the end of your day, we will ask you to return to the laboratory for a debriefing session or will meet you at your workplace. For further information on the ambulatory study, please see the webpages on your right.

The Sleep, Health, and Wellness Project, 2009-2011 is funded by the Health Research Board. For further information, or to enquire about participation, please contact the Project Manager, Dr. Siobhán Howard at siobhan.howard@nuigalway.ie
