In this randomized controlled clinical trial study,
all nurses in the two COVID-19 patient care units were
randomly assigned to the control and intervention groups.
The MBSR program was implemented online for 7 weeks
for the intervention group by a trainer. The Pittsburgh Sleep
Quality Index (PSQI) was completed online by the
participants in both groups before and after the intervention.
The results of the data analysis indicated that the
intervention improved the scores of subjective sleep quality,
sleep latency, and sleep efficiency in the intervention group.
In the control group, there was a significant increase in the
scores of subjective sleep quality, daily performance, and
the total index score in the post-test. Besides, there was a
significant difference between the two groups in only two
components of sleep latency and subjective sleep quality.
MBSR program can be an effective intervention to improve
the sleep quality of nurses working in COVID-19 intensive
care units who are at risk of sleep quality disorders in
