Cost-effectiveness of cognitive–behavioural therapy for sleep disorder added to usual care in patients with schizophrenia: the BEST study
Background: Sleep problems are pervasive in people with schizophrenia, but there are no clinical guidelines about their treatment in this context. The Better Sleep Trial (BEST) concluded that cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for insomnia, suitably adapted for this population, is likely to be highly effective for improving sleep in patients with schizophrenia. However, the cost-effectiveness of this sleep treatment for patients with schizophrenia is unknown.
