PMID: 36731933.


Up to a quarter of the world's population experience chronic pain, which, in addition to interfering with daily activities and waking function, is often associated with poor sleep. Individuals experiencing poor sleep are often encouraged to implement sleep hygiene strategies. However, current sleep hygiene strategies have not been developed considering the unique challenges faced by individuals with chronic pain and therefore they might not be as effective in this population. The aim of this scoping review is to map the state of the existing literature examining sleep hygiene strategies in individuals with chronic pain.
