Background:
The Conference on Sleep, Well-being and Active Ageing: New Evidence for Policy and Practice will showcase findings from the 4 year SomnIA (Sleep in Ageing) project*. This multi-disciplinary project has conducted 8 inter-linked research studies on how to optimise sleep among older people living in the community and in care homes as part of the New Dynamics of Ageing initiative.  Visit the website:    www.somnia.surrey.ac.uk
 
SomnIA has conducted a range of interlinked studies aiming to optimise quality sleep among older people.   These include:
•        Research to understand the meanings and determinants of poor sleep quality among older people in the community and care homes. 
•        Trials to evaluate cost-effective non-pharmacological self-management of insomnia among people with chronic illness.
•        Evaluation of the effects of ‘blue-enriched’ light in improving the sleep and well-being of older people in the community and care homes.
•        Developing novel sensor-based products to help frail older people’s sleep.
•        Developing a web module on ‘Sleep Problems in Later Life’ for Healthtalkonline.
