2017: A Nurse-Led Group Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program for Insomnia
An EBP project was implemented to evaluate the effects of group cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia in an outpatient sleep center. Fourteen patients with insomnia attended a 5-session CBT-I program led by a psychiatric-mental health clinical nurse specialist. Improvement in wake after sleep onset and Insomnia Severity Index scores, as well as reduction in medication usage were achieved post-intervention.
