L’objectif de cette étude était de tester l’efficacité d’un programme de formation en ligne pour la gestion du travail par quarts et des longues heures de travail.

Objective  Pilot test the effectiveness of an online training program for managing shift work and long work hours. Method  Fifty-seven officers from across the United States participated for 12 weeks in a pre-test, training intervention, post-test design assessing the following measures: sleep using actigraphy, diaries, and surveys; knowledge and feedback about the training using surveys. Results  After the training, actigraphy data showed significant reductions in sleep latency and awakenings during sleep. Survey data showed reductions in sleepiness, difficulty staying awake during the day, and difficulty getting things done. Frequency of nightmares also decreased. Participant’s knowledge about sleep improved and satisfaction with the training was high. Conclusion  Participants were satisfied with the training and showed objective improvements in their sleep and subjective improvements in feelings when awake. This research will help inform interventions to improve police officer health and wellness.
