Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

People spend a considerable portion of time engaged in a bioneurological state termed sleep. Sleep loss impacts physiological, cognitive, and mood functioning. This study examined whether occupational therapists view sleep as an occupation and the extent to which they assess sleep precursors and sleep dysfunction.
