Few studies have used the combination of subjective and objective measures to investigate sleep problems as a primary outcome of concern in cancer patients. This study highlights the influence of sleep quality and duration on quality of life among breast and prostate cancer patients. Thirty-one participants were included in this study. Sleep quality and duration was assessed using a wearable actigraphy device and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index questionnaire. Quality of life was measured by European-Organization-For-Research-And-Treatment-Of-Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire. t-test statistics further investigates the influence of sleep quality and duration with quality of life in participants. Results implied that those breast cancer patients who were poor sleepers and short sleepers showed greater deficits in areas of quality of life. In contrast, those prostate cancer patients who were long sleepers and good sleepers displayed poorer quality of life using actigraphy.
