Sleep disorders may affect health, performance at work and quality of life

Management of sleep disorders may result in significant improvement of general health. The first step is talk to the primary care provider.

Social media use is rapidly increasing, as well as daytime and bedtime use of computers, including devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. Work, stress, menopause, advancing age or a variety of underlying medical conditions affecting the general population, may be responsible for those nights of missed sleep, until getting back to a normal pattern becomes increasingly difficult. An estimated 9 million people in Italy suffer from sleep disorders, that partially contribute to poorer work performance, general health and quality of life.

The SONNO & SALUTE project was born within this context, thanks to the contribution of an Italian pharma company, Fidia Farmaceutici: April through September 2017, the Project will be touring in several regions across Italy, namely Veneto, Lombardy, Piedmont, Liguria, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Lazio, Abruzzo, Apulia, Calabria, Sardinia and Sicily. The project is part of the awareness activities of the World Sleep Day 2017 and falls under the aegis of the World Sleep Society. It has been developed by sleep scientists and experts and is dedicated to GPs, with the aim to advance, also in Italy, knowledge about sleep health and disorders. The goal and purpose of this Project is the early recognition of patients with insomnia or other sleep disorders, to expedite most appropriate treatment approach.
