This project is a randomized controlled trial to test whether a multicomponent, nonpharmacological intervention improves sleep/wake patterns and functional recovery among older people undergoing post-acute rehabilitation.
The purpose of this study is to perform a randomized controlled trial to test whether a multicomponent, nonpharmacological intervention improves sleep/wake patterns and functional recovery among older people (N = 214) undergoing post-acute rehabilitation. The intervention will combine: 1) structured sleep assessment, 2) patient education in key elements of cognitive behavioral strategies to improve sleep, and 3) environmental interventions on factors which likely contribute to abnormal sleep/wake patterns in the post-acute rehabilitation setting.
This project will be conducted in a VA post-acute rehabilitation site. Older veterans (>= 60 years) who were previously community-dwelling (N = 214) will be randomized to receive the intervention, or a social contact and memory skills training program as the control condition. Data collected at baseline will include medical data and demographics, as well as subjective and objective measures of sleep, structured assessments of functional status, and medical comorbidity. Follow-up assessments will be performed in the facility while the intervention/control condition is in place, and at three months and six months after discharge from rehabilitation. The main outcome measures will include objective sleep measures (nighttime percent sleep and daytime percent sleep) and functional status collected at three and six months follow-up. Data will be analyzed for all randomized participants in an intention to treat analysis.

Despite the high prevalence of sleep difficulties in children with disruptive behavior disorders, little is known about the role of sleep in treating disruptive behavior. The current study...
Sleep fragmentation is common among those with advanced serious illness. Nonpharmacological interventions to improve sleep have few, if any, adverse effects and are often underutilized in these settin...
Sleep problems are frequently addressed as a primary or secondary concern during the visit to the pediatric neurology clinic. Sleep disorders can mimic other neurologic diseases (e.g., epilepsy and mo...
Sleep disorders are increasingly recognized in active duty service members (ADSM). While there are multiple studies in male ADSM, there are limited data regarding sleep disorders in women in the milit...
Sleep disorders are a common problem during childhood. The consequences are variable, and sleep disorders can influence medical, psychological and developmental aspects of the growing child. It is imp...
Sleep disorders are often associated with functional gastro-intestinal disorders (FGIDs). This study aims to evaluate the association of sleep disorders with specific FGIDs and to assess the related i...
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)
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)
Sleep disorders characterized by impaired arousal from the deeper stages of sleep (generally stage III or IV sleep).
A broad category of sleep disorders characterized by either hypersomnolence or insomnia. The three major subcategories include intrinsic (i.e., arising from within the body) (SLEEP DISORDERS, INTRINSIC), extrinsic (secondary to environmental conditions or various pathologic conditions), and disturbances of circadian rhythm. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
