||This study aims to investigate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of nurse-delivered sleep restriction therapy (+sleep hygiene) for insomnia disorder in primary care compared with sleep hygiene.
- To establish whether nurse-delivered sleep restriction therapy (+sleep hygiene) for insomnia disorder in primary care is clinically effective relative to sleep hygiene. Both groups will continue to receive treatment as usual without restriction.
- To establish whether nurse-delivered sleep restriction therapy (+sleep hygiene) for insomnia disorder in primary care is cost-effective relative to sleep hygiene, from NHS and societal perspectives.
- To undertake a process evaluation to explain trial results and understand intervention delivery, fidelity and acceptability.
||Randomised controlled trial
||Primary outcome is self-rated insomnia severity using the insomnia severity index (ISI) questionnaire at 6 (3, 12) months.
Secondary outcomes include:
- Self-rated HRQoL using the SF-36 questionnaire (Mental component summary [MSC] score and Physical component summary [PCS] score)
- Subjective sleep recorded over 7 nights using the consensus sleep diary (CSD) (sleep-onset latency [SOL]; wake-time after sleep onset [WASO]; sleep efficiency [SE]; total sleep time [TST]; sleep quality [SQ]).
