1. Understanding Mechanisms
For example: How do cancer treatments, like chemotherapy, impact circadian rhythms and can the maintenance of circadian function improve treatment outcomes? In what ways may improved sleep and psychological well-being intersect with and influence biological processes and outcomes?
2. Prevention and Intervention
For example: What factors increase risk for disturbed sleep after a cancer diagnosis? Is there an optimal time in the treatment trajectory to treat sleep disturbances?
3. Personalizing Treatment
For example: How do individual characteristics and preference influence treatment adherence and outcome?
4. Increasing Access
For example: What are the best ways to translate current evidence-based interventions to treat sleep disturbances in unique and underserved populations, e.g. parents of children with cancer, survivors of childhood cancer, patients at end of life?
