Evaluating Internet-Based Interventions for Insomnia in Cancer Patients
The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of using an Internet program to improve
the sleep of cancer patients with insomnia. Participants will receive access to the
Internet program (called SHUTi, or "Shut-Eye") as well as to self-hypnosis recordings
designed to improve sleep. SHUTi provides an online, tailored educational program to
individuals who are experiencing sleep difficulties, including those having difficulty
falling asleep, waking in the middle of the night, and waking too early in the morning.
