Using the Recovery Model in the Development of a Sleep Hygiene Program for Individuals in a Psychiatric Inpatient Setting
Thesis
Description: 

The objective of this study was to evaluate sleep disturbances, review treatment methods, and develop a plan of treatment options utilizing sleep hygiene methods. A review of literature included sleep disturbances and interventions to alleviate such problems. Hospital staff was queried regarding sleep disturbance and solutions to patients’ difficulty with sleep. Patient satisfaction surveys were collected and analyzed and the data were used to develop educational workshops for inpatient mental health nursing staff to enhance their awareness of sleep hygiene as a recovery focused self-care strategy for patients with mental illness.Through an action plan created from feedback by the nursing staff, utilization of sleep hygiene methods resulted in higher reported patient satisfaction with sleep. These results suggest the educational workshops may provide an opportunity to empower patients to care for themselves and to promote continued self-care guidelines after discharge.
