Need Sleep? Interventions for Healthful Sleep

Cancer is a complex illness that often carries a significant burden of side effects for patients, who are today experiencing an increased number of years in survivorship. Insomnia (i.e. trouble falling asleep, maintaining sleep, early morning awakenings and non-restorative sleep), is prevalent in patients with cancer and their caregivers and often goes undertreated. Insomnia impacts quality of life and also has the potential to interfere with immune functioning and patient treatment outcomes (Lis, C.G., Gupta, D., and Grytsch, J.F., 2008). Causes of insomnia include dysfunctional beliefs about sleep, fears, ruminating thoughts, and maladaptive behaviors. Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) has been shown to be an effective intervention for sleep disturbance, and can be preferable to pharmacotherapy, which is often associated with side effects (Perlis, M.L., Jungquist, C., Smith, M.T., & Posner, D., 2008). Need Sleep? was created as a multi-component, structured, cognitive behavioral program for patients and caregivers who identify sleep disturbance as a problem, but have not been diagnosed with a sleep disorder. Session content includes education on insomnia and the role of dysfunctional beliefs about sleep, ruminating thoughts and fears. Information on sleep hygiene and relaxation techniques are also provided and the concepts of sleep restriction and stimulus control are discussed. Weekly sleep diaries are used both as a learning tool and as a way to calculate sleep efficiency. In session worksheets and homework assignments serve to reinforce learning. Such evidence based interventions have the potential to increase quality of life and reduce negative health outcomes. Oncology social workers would benefit from learning a protocol, such as "Need Sleep?" which would provide them with strategies to better assist patients and caregivers experiencing insomnia.

Pets Are Wonderful Supports…Usually

Pets Are Wonderful Supports…Usually: Ethical, Legal and Practical Implications of Emotional Support, Service and Therapy Animals in Oncology Settings This webinar, featuring Christina Bach, MSW, MBE, LCSW, OSW-C, FAOSW, was recorded in February 2020. Companion animals play important roles in many individuals' lives. Some animals also have jobs: as service animals, therapy animals and emotional support animals. But as more animals are in public settings, guidelines, regulations and policies for how to handle these "working animals" have become increasingly muddy. As social workers, we may be asked to write letters on behalf of our clients to justify a need for an emotional support animal-but do we even know what this means? Do our clients? Are we putting ourselves at risk ethically and legally by writing these letters? Can we be better advocates for establishing visiting animal programs in our treatment centers to help our patients cope with their treatments? How do we interpret the ADA and other laws to guide our practice? This webinar will unpack the nuances between service, therapy and emotional support animals and how, why, and where they are legally permitted to work. We will then shift to talk about the legal and ethical quandaries social workers may face when asked to write letters for our clients and use case examples to highlight some of the challenges we may face in our clinical practice. Finally, a framework for intervention and education at micro and macro levels will be presented for participants to think about how they can influence policy and procedure at their own treatment centers. Eligible for CE credit upon successful completion of a quiz.
