The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) is a valuable aid to investiage areas that can affect the quality and quantity of sleep. It includes a careful measurement of bedtime, time to get to sleep, wake-up time, hours of sleep, barriers to getting or staying asleep, and the use of sleep medications. The results gathered from the assessment can help care providers to start a dialogue that leads to an effective care plan with appropriate, individualized interventions. This assessment test can be self-administered or completed through an interview process. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.
