About the Project
Previous research has used behaviour change interventions to improve sleep and sleep hygiene in adults. For example, Mairs and Mullan (2015) found that both self-monitoring and implementation intentions improved sleep hygiene and sleep outcomes. Horsch et al (2017) found that reminders increased adherence to an online self-help sleep intervention. However, little research has systematically used psychological frameworks (e.g. Michie and colleages COM-B model, e.g., Michie et al, 2011) to understand the facilitators of and barriers to good sleep, and used these as the basis for intervention development. This PhD project will therefore use the COM-B model to understand the facilitators and barriers to good sleep and sleep hygiene, and design and evaluate potential interventions to improve sleep.
