SHUTi-C Study News

August 6, 2009

The SHUTi-C research study tests whether our insomnia Internet intervention (SHUTi) can improve poor sleep in cancer survivors. After completion of the Internet intervention, half of the participants were also randomized to receive access to online hypnosis recordings created by UVA professor, Lora Baum. Our study just closed to enrollment, with 29 adult participants in total; our final subject will finish the program in mid-November, and results will be analyzed at that time. Next we will run focus group sessions with study participants in order to generate ideas and feedback to be used in a future project.
