Introduction: Fear of sleep is one of the disorders of veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Objective: Due to the importance of investigating the factors related to sleep fear, the present study was conducted to investigate the relationship between sleep fear and death anxiety in veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Material and Methods: This descriptive correlational study was performed on 125 veterans of post-traumatic stress disorder in Golestan province in 2020. The sampling method of this study is the census. Data collection tools are Sleep Inventory-Short Form (FOSI-SF) and Templer Death Anxiety Questionnaire. The collected information were analyzed with statistical software SPSS 21 and Kruskal-Wallis test and Spearman correlation coefficient tests were used to analyze data.
Results: The rate of fear of sleep was 47.52±14.27 and the rate of death anxiety was 9.69±2.56. Spearman correlation coefficient test showed a significant relationship (P = 0.002, r = -0.27). So that increasing the fear of sleep increases the level of death anxiety.
Discussion and Conclusion: The results of this study showed that by reducing the fear of sleep, the rate of death anxiety decreases. Therefore, it is necessary to pay more attention to the sleep health of veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress.
