Fatigue and Sleep Deprivation

Fatigue and Sleep Deprivation

Being a doctor typically involves high-intensity, time-pressured working patterns. These can lead to sleep deprivation and fatigue, effecting doctors’ health, well-being and performance, their safety and that of their patients.

It also presents a framework for how Government, organisations and doctors themselves can manage this risk.
