SYMPOSIUM 9: In the Wild: Leveraging Technologies to Accelerate the Translation and Reach of Sleep and Circadian Science Into Real-Life Settings  

CHAIRPERSON: Anne Germain1

PRESENTERS: Anne Germain1; Christopher Connaboy2; Daniel Taylor3; Rachel Markwald4

AFFILIATIONS: 1 NOCTEM; 2 University of Pittsburgh; 3 University of Arizona; 4 NHRC

DESCRIPTION: In this session, speakers will present findings from ongoing efforts aimed at leveraging and testing new technologies to support the translation of lab-based sleep and circadian science into large-scale, real-life applications. The symposium will cover specific examples that demonstrate the potential and real impact of technology-supported strategies to support sleep health, from sleep optimization to sleep treatments, and across a variety of occupational, operational, and clinical settings. Challenges and opportunities for monitoring and managing sleep "in the wild" will also be discussed by each speaker.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Identify gaps, adaptations, and opportunities to advance the translation of sleep and circadian science findings into a variety of occupational and clinical settings
  2. Describe the unique strengths, limitations, and value added by novel sleep monitoring technologies when used in large-scale efforts "in the wild"
  3. Detail different approaches to the expansion of synchronous and asynchronous sleep and fatigue management in occupational and clinical settings.
