Thanks to Siobhan Wray, an Associate Professor in Organisational Behaviour at Lincoln University for a useful roundup of research resources on this, including….
- A systematic review of shift work and nurses’ health:
- This – ‘Working Time Society consensus statements: Evidence-based effects of shift-work on physical and mental health [pdf] – is not specifically about changing shifts but a good, up-to-date overview of the evidence base more generally.
- This – Association of changes in work shifts and shift intensity with change in fatigue and disturbed sleep: a within-subject study [pdf] – is a high-quality study with a strong focus on types of shift work and patterns of shift.
- How to schedule night shift work in order to reduce health and safety risks
