Abstract

A 10-item, subjective, self-report measure, the LSEQ was designed to assess changes in sleep quality over the course of a psychopharmacological treatment intervention. The scale evaluates four domains: ease of initiating sleep, quality of sleep, ease of waking, and behavior following wakefulness.
