Brief Summary:
This phase III trial compares BBT-CI to HEAL for the reduction of insomnia in patients with stage I-III cancer who are receiving chemotherapy. Chemotherapy can cause side effects such as sleep problems. Sleep problems such as insomnia, are common for cancer patients. Insomnia can be described as difficulty falling asleep, waking up many times during the night or waking up earlier than patient would like. Insomnia can increase fatigue and worsen quality of life. This trial may help researchers determine which treatment works better in reducing insomnia, BBT-CI or HEAL.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. Determine the efficacy of BBT-CI compared to HEAL as measured by the patient report outcome (PRO) of insomnia (i.e., the Insomnia Severity Index) at post-intervention.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVE:

I. Determine the efficacy of BBT-CI compared to HEAL on sleep efficiency as measured via actigraphy at post intervention.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 groups.

GROUP I (BBT-CI): Patients complete face to face/video sessions with a trained staff member over 60 minutes each on day 0 and day 14 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 1 or 2 weeks) or day 21 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 3 weeks). Patients also complete phone sessions over 15 minutes each on day 7, day 14 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 1 or 2 weeks) or day 21 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 3 weeks), and days 28 and 35.

GROUP II (HEAL): Patients complete face to face/video sessions with a trained staff member over 60 minutes each on day 0 and day 14 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 1 or 2 weeks) or day 21 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 3 weeks). Patients also complete phone sessions over 15 minutes each on day 7, day 14 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 1 or 2 weeks) or day 21 (if patient's chemotherapy cycles are separated by 3 weeks), and days 28 and 35.

After completion of study, patients are followed for up to 6 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean change in the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) total score [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 42 ]
    The Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) is a validated self-report measure of insomnia. A 5-point Likert Scale of seven questions is used to rate each item (0=no problem; 4=very severe problem), yielding a total score ranging from 0-28 with higher scores indicating higher severity of insomnia. A linear mixed effects analysis of covariance model (ANCOVA) will be used to assess the statistical significance of the differences in mean change between BBT-CI and HEAL.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean change in Sleep Efficiency assessed via Actigraphy [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 42 ]
    Actigraphy will assess sleep efficiency, calculated as the percent of total sleep time to time in bed. Higher percentage indicates better sleep efficiency. A linear mixed effects analysis of covariance model (ANCOVA) will be used to assess the statistical significance of the differences in mean change between BBT-CI and HEAL.
