Sleep and Health Across the Lifespan: An Epidemiological Perspective
Sleep difficulties are an unmet public health problem, affecting large segments of the population around the world. This seminar will provide an overview of the role of sleep in wellbeing and chronic disease risk across the lifespan, including some methodological issues in sleep epidemiology research. We will present findings on sleep health among 30,097 middle-aged and older adults using baseline data from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). We will discuss the cross-sectional associations between poor sleep and multiple chronic diseases (multimorbidity), and mental health and wellbeing, as well as findings on the social determinants of sleep health in the CLSA.
