There is a high prevalence of poor sleep quality among university students studying in different areas such as medicine, nursing, art, science, social work etc. and in different countries. However, the studies done especially for physiotherapy students, and in Turkey, as well, are not many. Therefore, we aimed to search the sleep quality among physiotherapy students, and observe the association between the health related quality of life and physical activity level of the physiotherapy students.
The physiotherapy students were included. Their quality of sleep will be assessed by Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. The physical activity will be searched by International Physical Activity Questionnaire, and SF-36 will be used to assess quality of life. Data is going to analyzed statistically
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Sleep Quality Quality of Life Physical Activity||Behavioral: Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) Behavioral: International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) Behavioral: The Short Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36)|
Therefore, recent studies are focusing on the sleep quality of university students in different countries, and reporting that medical students pharmacy students, nursing students are experiencing poor quality of sleep. However, to our knowledge, studies done on sleep quality of students and especially the physiotherapy students are not available in Turkey, yet.
Hence, since the university students are one of the high risk groups for developing poor sleep quality, we aimed to evaluate if the sleep quality of the physiotherapy students in both gender are associated with their quality of life and physical activity level.

Behavioral: Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI)
The sleep quality was evaluated through the Turkish version of the PSQI containing 19 self-rated questions searching the sleep quality during the previous month. It has seven components as subjective sleep quality, sleep latency, sleep duration, sleep efficiency, sleep disturbances, use of sleep medications, and daytime dysfunction.
Each component is scored from 0 to 3, and the Global Pittsburgh Quality of Sleep (PQS) score is the sum of the scores of the seven components that is between 0 and 21. The higher Global PQS scores indicate poor sleep quality and the cut off score for poor sleep is 5 and over.
Other Name: IPAQ, SF-36 Quality of life
Behavioral: International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ)
The physical activity of the participants was assessed through the Turkish version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire -Short Form (IPAQ-SF), which includes 6 questions searching the frequency (days per week) and duration (hours) of walking, as well as low, moderate and vigorous physical activity that they engaged in during the last seven days prior to survey. Vigorous physical activity, defined by the questionnaire, referred to intense exercise that resulted in very rapid breathing and an elevated heart rate (e.g. intense weight lifting, aerobics, running, and cycling). Moderate physical activity was defined as less intense exercise that slightly heightened breathing and heart rate (e.g. less exertive cycling, fast walking, and light weight lifting).
Other Name: Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, SF-36
Behavioral: The Short Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36)
The Turkish version of SF-36 was used to understand the health related quality-of -life (HRQOL) of the participants over the past four weeks in eight health concepts: limitations in physical activities because of health problems; limitations in social activities because of physical or emotional problems; limitations in usual role activities because of physical health problems; bodily pain; general mental health (psychological distress and well-being); limitations in usual role activities because of emotional problems; vitality (energy and fatigue); and general health perceptions. Additionally, the psychometric evaluation of the SF-36 generated two summary scores as the Mental Health Component Score and the Physical Health Component Score that the higher scores indicate better HRQOL.

- Sleep Quality [ Time Frame: 3 months ]The sleep quality of the students will be evaluated by means of the Turkish version of the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index through face-to-face interview. This assessment will provide us information about the type and duration of their sleep as well as their sleep efficiency, if there are any sleep disturbances or if they are using any sleep medications or not. Additionally, this will provide us about if the sleep quality affects their daytime functions.
- Physical activity [ Time Frame: 3 months ]The physical activity of the participants will assessed through the Turkish version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire -Short Form. The frequency (days per week) and duration (hours) of walking, the intensity of their physical activity as if they are low, moderately and vigorously physical active or not will be searched. This covers the duration of the last seven days prior to survey.
- Health related quality-of -life [ Time Frame: 3 months ]The Turkish version of SF-36 will used to understand the health related quality-of -life of the participants over the past four weeks. The eight health concepts: limitations in physical activities because of health problems; limitations in social activities because of physical or emotional problems; limitations in usual role activities because of physical health problems; bodily pain; general mental health (psychological distress and well-being); limitations in usual role activities because of emotional problems; vitality (energy and fatigue); and general health perceptions will be searched. These outcomes will be grouped as physical component summary and mental component summary. The norm data is 0-100, the health related quality of life is increases as the scores are increased. The average score is 50.
