A revised version of the Sleep Awareness & Fatigue Education in Residency (SAFER) presentation is now available through the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). This modified tool features 79 Power Point slides designed to educate residents about sleep. “SAFER is intended as a resource that complements the implementation of [Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education] ACGME guidelines for work hours,” an AASM flier states. “It will help residents avoid sleep deprivation when possible and manage sleepiness when deprivation occurs.”
