Practical Solutions – If it doesn’t fit in with shift workers’ schedule or lifestyle or an organization’s operations, it is just a waste of time. My experience has led me to an understanding of what is practical, but yet reflects the best expertise on the subject.A wider range of relevant content – Shift workers have a primary interest in sleep, diet and family strategies. I go beyond the basics and provide information about common sleep disorders and strategies for maintaining alertness and overcoming sleepiness and fatigue while at work or driving.
Specialty in circadian rhythm disorders – Giving information about shift work is only relevant if it is based on knowledge of circadian rhythms and circadian type. I incorporate this information in a simple to understand explanation so that shift workers can work ‘with’ their body and not against it.
Assessments – For those shift workers who are having more than the usual challenges with shift work, I have developed assessments to determine the root of their difficulty and can make recommendations for improvement.
