The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), in collaboration with others, has created a free e-learning course about sleep.
The RSPH say that:
“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.
Sleep is a vital building block in the foundations of health and wellbeing, and yet it is often overlooked and underestimated. This e-learning 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.
The RSPH course has four sections:
- Introduction to sleep as a public health issue
- Melatonin, drugs and alcohol
- Sleep and culture
- Sleep disorders
