[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer death in Taiwan, as in much of the industrialized world, yet studies describing the experience of patients living with lung cancer are limited. Sleep disturbances are a relatively prevalent and common health problem in lung cancer patients. Poor sleep quality degrade the functional status of health. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accordance among three typical measures of sleep in patients with non-small cell lung cancer in Taiwan. A cross-sectional research design was undertaken in 39 non-small cell lung cancer patients. Measurements included the Chinese Version of Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Seven-day daily sleep log, and wrist actigraph. Statistical analyses included descriptive statistics, Pearson's correlation, One-way ANOVA, Chi-square, and Paired-t tests analysis. Three measures (PSQI, Seven-day daily sleep log, and wrist actigraph) all demonstrated that non-small cell lung cancer patients had sleep disturbances (23.08%, 84.62%, & 97.44%), respectively. The accordance of Seven-day daily sleep log and wrist actigraph was significant high (87.18%), but only 20.51% of the patients were classified as accordance between PSQI and wrist actigrpah. There was also lower accordance rate between PSQI and Seven-day daily sleep log (33.33%). There was a significant difference between subjective and objective measures of sleep parameters, especially in waking episodes (WEs). Sleep parameters of PSQI tended to have greater sleep disturbance than other two measures. Consequently, the congruency among the three measures was not satisfactory. Researchers should be cautions when comparing sleep disturbance rates between studies that use different methods for assessing sleep disturbance. Results from this study provide important basis for assessment of sleep disturbance in patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
