Abstract: Anyone leaning towards sleep quality; this statement is equally applicable to person hospitalized or in home-care center. In fact, it is essential to understand that biological and physiological aspects of sleep vary with age and health of the person. In situations where the need to sleep is disrupted, nurses must attempt to positively influence the satisfaction of this need and ensure that the positive effects of the sleep occurs for the person to promote his recovery and return to health. The goal of this pre-experimental study is to influence the choice of nursing interventions by focusing on better knowledge of the need for sleep and a wider choice of non-pharmacological nursing interventions following a training on sleep for a specific population: hospitalized seniors or in home-care centre. The purpose of this training is to provide optimal nursing interventions for seniors – both hospitalized or in a home-care center – by helping nurses to understand pharmacological interventions effects on elderly and by proposing them non-pharmacological nursing interventions. Two complementary frameworks guide this research: the Virginia Henderson’s conceptual framework and the "Approche adaptée à la personne âgée" framework proposed by the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux and adopted by every health organizations. Based on a convenience sample of 59 nurses and 285 seniors, a measurement of knowledge, a measurement of potential means and a measurement of interventions were completed. The results showed that the nurses have improved their knowledge for non-pharmacological interventions, which was reflected by a decrease in medication use to promote sleep among hospitalized and home-care center seniors. Finally, nursing interventions in this research highlighted the impact of nursing care: following the training, positive effects were noticeable about the medication use as a way to promote sleep quality for elders hospitalized and in home-care center.
