Sleep & Fatigue Project

Sleep & Fatigue Project

The 4 Wing Sleep & Fatigue Project is an initiative of the 4 Wing BALANCE Steering Committee and is facilitated by PSP Health Promotion. 

The Project aims to understand the sleep habits, fatigue risk and needs of 4 Wing CAF members. This will be done over a 12-month data collection period, which will see selected groups of CAF members wear sleep data collection devices for 30-day cycles.
