How to cite this Dataset


This dataset is comprised of verbatim transcriptions from recordings of face-to-face interviews with physicians who are authorised to prescribe benzodiazepines and z-drugs at King Fahad Central Hospital in Jazan, Saudi Arabia. Interviews were conducted to understand physicians’ perceptions of and attitudes towards using international guidelines to manage their patients with insomnia. Verbatim transcripts of the interviews were entered into NVivo 11 and analysed using thematic analysis. Themes were generated from the data expressing physicians’ knowledge of, resistance to, and barriers and facilitators to the use of international guidelines.
