Qualitative experience of sleep in individuals with spinal cord injury.
The objective of this study was to examine the experience of sleep among individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Sleep-related data were found in transcripts for 90 percent of the sample. Participants described diminished sleep duration and irregular sleep patterns. Several factors contributing to poor sleep were identified, including SCI-related circumstances and sleep environment. Participants also discussed how poor sleep affected occupational engagement.
