The People's trial is an online pragmatic, randomised controlled trial to determine if reading a book in bed makes a difference to sleep in comparison to not reading a book in bed.
The People's Trial seeks to help enhance the public's understanding of randomised trials by facilitating the involvement of the public in the trial research process. The public have, through an online format, guided the development and design of The People's Trial randomised controlled trial. The People's trial is a parallel, online randomised controlled trial to determine if reading a book in bed makes a difference to sleep in comparison to not reading a book in bed.
Members of the public will be recruited through online platforms. Informed consent will be obtained from all participants prior to trial registration. Consent forms will be provided online prior to registration for The People's Trial. Participants will be required to acknowledge that they have read the consent form and give consent to proceed with trail registration.
Participants will be randomly allocated into one of two groups:
Group 1: Reading a book in bed
Group 2: Not reading a book in bed
Reading a book

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep. (From Chokroverty, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, pp319-20; Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 1998 Apr:52(2):125-129)
Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
