Sleep disturbances and sleep deprivation are common in modern society. Increasingly, populations have been subjected to a steady decline in the number of hours devoted to sleep due to changes in environmental and social conditions. Through the application of epidemiological methods of investigation, sleep deprivation has been shown to be associated with a variety of chronic conditions and health outcomes, detectable across the entire lifespan from childhood to adulthood to old age.

This book will be of interest to a wider audience, than just health professionals and medical students. It is a health guide across the University community as a whole and the population at large. It addresses issues concerning social, legal, economic, cultural, educational, employment, professional as well as managerial sectors of our society.

Come along and you will have the opportunity to speak to the Editors and some of the contributors.
