The below information is to inform you of a research study about the use of an app for people diagnosed with cancer and have insomnia. This study is being conducted out of Memorial University of Newfoundland’s psychology department. Ovarian Cancer Canada is committed to driving research forward, and therefore shares relevant opportunities with those affected by ovarian cancer, where appropriate.

A new research study to treat insomnia in cancer survivors through a smartphone-based app called iCANSleep is now recruiting participants. You may be eligible to participate if you: have ever received a cancer diagnosis, have difficultly falling or staying asleep, are an iPhone user, and live in Canada.

The iCANSleep App has been developed in close collaboration with cancer survivors, ensuring its relevance and effectiveness, and includes the core components of cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-I).

For more details and contact information if you are interested in the study, please see the poster below.
