Journal Club #82: Sleep & COVID-19: Nurses and Psychological Health
Description: Sleep health has taken a big hit globally in the wake of the pandemic. This isn’t news, nor is it surprising to learn that our healthcare peers on the COVID-19 frontline are suffering from long-term sleep and mental health problems. One particular population of medical professionals, registered nurses, are the target for recent research suggesting an alarming mental health impact on those working the frontlines. In this month’s Journal Club, we’ll review how sleep, or lack of sleep, or poor sleep, can affect psychological health in general and consider sleep health among healthcare workers prior to the pandemic. Then we’ll break down the NORFUL et al study into two separate sections, the first one examining the foundation of the study specifically tuned to psychological health concerns, and the second section focused on the sleep health implications of the study as well as insights into how this might impact us on the job in sleep clinics and research laboratories.
