Introduction: Sleep disorders are one of the most common problems in the postwar stress veterans facing. Spirituality, as one of the dimensions of mental health, plays an important role in the physical, psychological and social consequences of this disorder.
Objective: The present study aimed to investigate the effect of pure heart-based spiritual care model on veterans’ sleep quality.
Materials and Methods: This quasi-experimental study was performed on 60 veterans referring to a selected military hospital in Mashhad in 2020. Samples were divided into test and control groups non-randomly. The test group received a pure heart-based spiritual care training in 60-45-minute 5 sessions lasting 5 weeks. Data were collected using the Demographic Questionnaire and the PSQI Sleep Quality Scale (PSQI)then analyzed by the  statistical tests of independent t-test، paired t-test using SPSS 20 (Sig <0.05).
Results: The quality of sleep of the veterans before the intervention in the experimental group (13.03±3.27) and control (12.83±3.2) was not statistically
significant (P= 0.8). However, after the intervention, the mean quality of sleep of the veterans in the experimental group (11.13±2.62) and control (13±3.51) was statistically significant (P=0.023). Thus, 6% of postoperative changes are caused by the effect of the intervention (Eta = 0.6, P= 0.02)
Discussion and Conclusion: According to the results, post-traumatic stress disorder has played a significant role in the quality of sleep of veterans. Therefore planners and health managers, as well as related physicians, are required to consider preventive and therapeutic measures to increase the quality of sleep of veterans.
