Intervention for Sleep Disturbance in HCT Survivors
“Intervention for Sleep Disturbance in HCT Survivors”
The purpose of this study is to: To test a new intervention for sleep disturbance among hematopoietic cell transplant survivors. About 50 hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) survivors will participate in this intervention. Preliminary Steps: To conduct qualitative interviews with patients, caregivers, and clinicians regarding sleep disturbance in hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) survivors and on preferences for a new mHealth intervention for sleep disturbance. About 30 individuals (10 HCT survivors, 10 caregivers and 5-10 clinicians) will participate in this part of the study.
mHealth Stepped-care Intervention
Test of the feasibility and acceptability of an mHealth stepped-care intervention for sleep disturbance in HCT survivors, to compare with the control group.
Educational Control Condition
General health education for cancer survivors provided in NCI booklets entitled Facing Forward: Life After Cancer Treatment and Coping With Advanced Cancer.
After the intervention, participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire to provide feedback on the intervention.
Qualitative interviews will be gathered after the participants have completed participation in the new intervention to gather data to inform future refinements of the intervention.
To conduct qualitative interviews with patients, caregivers, and clinicians regarding sleep disturbance in HCT survivors and on preferences for a new mHealth intervention for sleep disturbance. Separate panels of 10 HCT survivors, 10 caregivers who were the primary caregiver of an HCT survivor during or after the inpatient HCT hospitalization, and 5-10 HCT clinicians will be recruited for individual qualitative interviews via telephone or in person.
