Sleep in ageing women
This project aimed to investigate:
- The effect of ageing on sleep patterns for women aged 40 and over
- The nature of sleep problems experienced by these women
- The impact of these problems on women's daily lives
- The strategies and treatments women use to overcome sleep problems.
It employed a multi-method approach, including 15 focus groups (N=124), in-depth interviews (N=35), audio sleep diaries (N=35), and a national postal questionnaire (N=1500).
