Abstract

It is critical that clinicians and healthcare systems adopt routine screening and affordable interventions to reduce chronic insomnia and improve the quality of life in cancer patients and survivors. We provide expert clinical advice on how to manage sleep-wake disturbances that occur comorbidly with cancer. Our discussion focuses on the etiology, screening, and assessment of sleep-wake disturbances, and on both nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic interventions to manage sleep disturbances, insomnia, and sleep-related breathing disorders. We share a simplified sleep management algorithm based on evidence-based guidelines and resources from the National Cancer Institute, National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and Oncology Nursing Society, as well as case studies that illustrate how oncology professionals can use the algorithm. Finally, we describe ways to strengthen the partnership between clinicians and patients in the management of sleep-wake disorders and related symptoms.
