Sleep, Health and Society

Sleep education is under-represented in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. This constitutes a missed opportunity as there are educational advantages to learning and teaching around sleep. Not only does the topic have the potential to link social, behavioural, and biomedical sciences in integrated, clinically relevant teaching, but also there is scope for inter-professional learning. Very few clinical disciplines can afford to ignore sleep in the curriculum for continuing professional development, and again the links between neurology, psychiatry, and cardio-respiratory medicine, for example, afford strategic learning opportunities for doctors. This chapter gives examples of successful sleep education, and demonstrates how patients and doctors alike have much to gain from inclusion of sleep topics in the curriculum.
