Health professional Administered Brief Insomnia Therapy (HABIT) Trial
The HABIT study aims to look at Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as treatment to Insomnia. Nurse-delivered Sleep Restriction Therapy (alongside Sleep Hygiene) will be compared to Sleep Hygiene alone. This will allow the researchers to establish the clinical and cost effectiveness of Sleep Restriction Therapy.
Insomnia is characterised by problems with starting and/or maintaining sleep. This can have an affect on the quality of life for those with insomnia. 10-12% of adults in Europe are affected by Insomnia. There are also associated costs with Insomnia, including increased healthcare use, reduced productivity and accidents.
