Can online programmes improve sleep and other outcomes for people following TBI?


Lead investigator:

This feasibility study aims to explore if two online programmes designed to improve sleep for people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are useful and effective. Following some initial consultation work with people who have experienced a brain injury and health professionals, some online programmes have been developed based on evidence based treatments for insomnia. This study will recruit 36 people who have experienced a brain injury and have sleep problems to see if the programmes can help to improve their sleep quality. The programmes can be used at home or alongside a health professional. One module of the programme takes about 15 minutes to be completed each week for 6 weeks.

Recruitment will start in January 2015 and will continue until June 2015.
