Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) and sleep deficiency are among the symptoms that patients and their caregivers most often experience. An increasing body of literature suggests that a strong correlation between CRF and sleep deficiency exists, indicating that they may be reciprocally related and that they may have similar underlying etiology. This paper aims at bringing together the opinions of leading cancer control (i.e., CRF and sleep) and oncology experts in order to increase the understanding of CRF and sleep deficiency's assessment, associated symptom clustering, symptom burden shared by caregivers, and CRF and sleep deficiency management in the cancer care context.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/13698||ISSN:||1433-7339||DOI:||10.1007/s00520-019-04746-9||Rights:||© Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature 2019||Type:||Article|
