Explaining the impact of shiftwork to BBC News

25th July 2018

Helen McKenna worked with the BBC and the Royal Free Hospital ICU to create an 90 second film about the current evidence-based strategies to help people cope with the difficulties on working the nightshift.  She was asked to discuss the work, and the increasing need for it, on the BBC News.

Watch the video here:

The video was commissioned to help the rapidly escalating number of people working nightshifts in the UK:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44938829

It was based on the findings of her review, with Dr Matt Wilkes, on the current evidence base for strategies to improve performance, sleep and well-being during nightshifts.
