ROUNDTABLE: Surveillance of Sleep Health in Canada

PRESENTER: Karen Roberts, Public Health Agency of Canada

Given the recent emergence of sleep as a topic area of relevance for general public health promotion, this symposium lead by the Public Health Agency of Canada will seek to (1) introduce attendees to the new public health recommendations for sleep contained within the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for all age groups, (2) describe the sleep content currently included within Canada’s national health surveys for surveillance and research; and (3) present some of the most recent sleep data from these Canadian surveys.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Gain a better understanding of the sleep recommendations contained within Canada’s 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for all age groups
  2. Explore the availability of population-based data on sleep in Canada.
  3. Examine national, population based estimates of: trends in sleep duration; sleep quality and sleep hygiene.
