STUDY BASICS

Are you age 21 or older and diagnosed with cancer? You may be able to participate in a research study to test a treatment to improve sleep that includes you and your loved one and to see if it is more effective than treating sleep problems individually. This study involves engaging in a 1 hour session each week for 5-6 weeks. Your spouse/partner must be willing to participate in this study.


STUDY PURPOSE

The purpose of the study is to design and test a sleep intervention for patients diagnosed with cancer and their intimate partner


WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT
  • You will be given access to an application (App) that you download for free and use with a UPMC health coach. 
  • You will be asked to complete a set of questionnaires no matter what group you are randomly assigned. 
  • Then you and your intimate partner will engage in sessions each week, interacting with the mobile application and health coach for 5-6 weeks or, only you will engage in the sessions each week for 5-6 weeks 
  • The intervention includes the mobile application to use daily in combination with the work you do with the health coach.
  • After the treatment, you and your intimate partner will complete a battery of questionnaires approximately 3- and 6-months after the first set of questionnaires. You will also complete a 30–45-minute interview about the app.
