Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This mixed-methods study informs OT on the quality, beliefs, attitudes, and functional outcomes of sleep among a sample population of active-duty soldiers. Significant relationships were found between poor quality, increased dysfunctional beliefs about sleep, and perceived decreased daily function. An overall essence emerged that contrary to acquiring knowledge of sleep hygiene principles, limited self-efficacy obstructs the ability to implement those principles.
