Episode 166: Cognitive Behavioral Interventions Help Patients With a Spectrum of Cancer Symptoms

ONS member Ellyn Matthews, PhD, RN, AOCNS®, CBSM, FAAN, professor at Regis University School of Nursing in Denver and member of the High Plains ONS Chapter, joins Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS, to discuss cognitive behavioral interventions, how they can help patients with cancer, and why oncology nurses are ideally positioned to deliver them. Ellyn and her colleagues have evaluated cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia in rural breast cancer survivors, delivered both in person and via telehealth. Her team published the study findings in the Oncology Nursing Forum, which we’ve linked in the episode notes.
