About

This research study is evaluating the effectiveness of a 3-session behavioral intervention for insomnia in cancer survivors. This is a behavioral intervention study, and no medications are involved.

Full description

This study is being done to test the usefulness of a 3-session cognitive-behavioral intervention for improving insomnia in cancer survivors. In this study, the investigators are testing whether this 3-session intervention (Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia in Cancer Survivors: CBTI-CS) will improve insomnia in cancer survivors whose continue to have insomnia symptoms after receiving sleep hygiene education. In addition to the participants who will be offered sleep hygiene education and the 3-session CBTI-CS,10 additional participants will be recruited to participate in a pilot evaluation of the CBTI-CS intervention delivered via telehealth. This will be a pilot aspect of the study and data from these participants will be for descriptive purposes.
