Clin J Oncol Nurs. 2022 Jul 25;26(4):399-405. doi: 10.1188/22.CJON.399-405.
BACKGROUND: Insomnia is highly prevalent among the oncology population, and it can affect quality of life for patients with cancer and survivors. Medications are a common treatment for insomnia. However, other treatment options, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, may also be effective.
OBJECTIVES: This review analyzes the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) to treat insomnia comorbid with cancer or during survivorship.
METHODS: Based on a literature search, 19 articles identified CBT-I as a treatment for individuals diagnosed with cancer.
FINDINGS: Studies confirm that CBT-I is an effective treatment for insomnia experienced by cancer survivors. A variety of treatment models have been studied, such as group-based, web-based, and video formats, as well as telemedicine delivery. Treatment effectiveness varies depending on the CBT-I treatment model used.
