The therapeutic effect of cognitive-behaviour therapy for older adults suffering from insomnia with short objective sleep duration: A randomized controlled trial

    Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstract

    Abstract

    Recent literature suggests individuals suffering chronic insomnia who have short objective sleep duration have underlying pathophysiological and clinical characteristics distinct from those with normal objective sleep duration. However, it remains unclear whether the therapeutic effects of CBTi differ between these proposed groups of insomnia sufferers. The present study evaluated the efficacy of a brief group-based program of cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBTi) for older insomniacs with short objective sleep relative to those with nor-mal sleep duration.
