ISLAND Project Sleep Study
The ISLAND Project Team at the University of Tasmania are looking for participants for a research study into sleep. The Sleep Study involves a series of online questionnaires, looking into sleep and associated factors in older Tasmanians. We hope to investigate sleep disorders, sleep quality and what contributes to poor sleep in the community. This study is open to anyone over the age of 50 residing in Tasmania and simply involves joining the ISLAND project and filling out some questionnaires about sleep and health online. Participants will also receive a personalised sleep score after completing the online questionnaires. Follow the link above for more information and to register your interest!
