Abstract

Oncology patients are at high risk for developing sleep disturbance and fatigue due a number of physiological and psychological factors associated with cancer, its treatment, and the burden of living with a chronic condition. Progress in our understanding of sleep disturbance and fatigue in oncology patients has been stymied by varying definitions for each symptom, as well as different instruments to measure each symptom. In addition, the co-occurrence of these and other common symptoms suggests that analytic methodologies that are currently available should be considered to model the relationships between these and among other common symptoms. The purpose of the chapter is to describe the prevalence, risk factors, measurement considerations, proposed mechanisms for and novel approaches to the study of these two common symptoms in oncology patients. Interventions to improve sleep and reduce fatigue are also described.
