Abstract :

The majority of the older adults have sleep disturbances. While there are two main approaches for the treatment of sleep disturbances, which are pharmacological and non-pharmacological, a substantial part of the non-pharmacological approaches might independently be practiced by nurses. Physical, mental, and psychological symptoms indicating the presence of sleep disorders can be accurately identified by the individual, management strategies can be planned together with the individual, and the results of the care provided can be evaluated comprehensively using symptoms management theory. This theory used for this purpose is a plausible theory for planning nursing interventions. Thus, the purpose of this review to introduce symptom management theory and to explain how to use this theory for describing symptoms of older adults with sleep disturbances, planning nursing interventions, and improving outcomes. Keywords: Nurse, symptom management theory, sleep, older adults. Yasli bireylerin onemli bir kisminda uyku bozuklugu gorulmektedir.
