An Integrative Review of Nonpharmacological Interventions to Improve Sleep among Adults with Advanced Serious Illness.

The Journal of Palliative Medicine just released a study to summarize the literature related to nonpharmacological interventions to improve sleep among adults with advanced serious illness. A total of 31 individual interventions were identified, each evaluated individually and some in combination with other interventions. Among these are complementary health practices and mind-body practices which appear to improve sleep in these patients.
