“The EMS Sleep Health Study: A Randomized Controlled Trial”
The experiment seeks to determine the impact of a sleep health and fatigue education and training program on diverse indicators of sleep and fatigue among Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel. The overarching goals of this research study are to  enhance our understanding of the relationships between shift work, sleep, and fatigue in EMS operations; and  determine whether or not providing education and training to EMS personnel on the importance of sleep health and dangers of fatigue impact indicators of sleep and fatigue. The investigators will accomplish these goals by using a cluster-randomized trial study design with a wait-list control group.
