About the event
This workshop is designed for scientists and clinicians to work together on two relevant topics and weigh the available evidence with the methods used for the production of clinical practice guidelines (to diagnose and manage diseases). Please visit this page for registration. A draft programme can be found here.
Differences between basic scientists and clinicians in evaluating research evidence represent one of main obstacles in translating into clinical practice the enormous amount of knowledge that has been generated in chronobiology over the past decades. The below topics will be examined in terms of the evidence available (formally weighed) and the features of the future studies needed:
1) Do healthy individuals have an increased risk of road traffic accidents during the Daylight Saving Time months (April-October) compared to the standard time months (November-March)?
2) In high school students, do delayed school times result in longer sleep duration compared to regular schedules?
