Preventing premature death is the aim of coroners’ Prevention of Future Deaths reports. But is this system really helping us to prevent such harms?

Depression is a very common and impairing condition. Current treatments include antidepressant medication and psychological therapy. Both can be effective, but more than one-third of people do not benefit from these treatments. There are reasons to think that poor sleep is an important contributor to depression, and that if sleep could be improved, depression would improve too. Previous research has shown that we can improve sleep quality using a behavioural treatment called ‘sleep restriction therapy’. This treatment involves reviewing the patient’s current sleep pattern and supporting them to follow a new, personalised sleep schedule. We want to find out whether using this treatment to improve sleep will also improve depression and, if so, how it works.

As UK hospitals move from paper based to electronic health records, the integration of digital alerts to identify patients at risk of deterioration has also become common.
