Abstract

Poor sleep quality may impede recovery from illness and cause quality of life to decline. An increasing number of nurses today use sleep quality as a primary indicator to measure the nature of sleep in the nursing research field. Therefore, understanding the concept of sleep quality is necessary for nurses. This paper was designed to review the concept of sleep quality using Walker and Avant's (2005) concept analysis. Results indicate that: (1) defining attributes of sleep quality include subjective perception of sleep, actual sleep hours and evaluation of activity after awaking; (2) antecedents of sleep quality include subject ability to get naturally into the sleep cycle and status of conscious state; (3) consequences of sleep quality may affect physical, psychological, social, and global dimensions; (4) among the many instruments that may be used to assess sleep quality include self-reported questionnaires and physiological measurement tools. The purpose of this paper was to help nurses better comprehend the concept of sleep quality and propose an approach to evaluate in both clinical and research settings subjects suffering from sleep-related problems using concept analysis.
