This randomized, controlled study will compare Mindfulness Awareness Practices for Insomnia (MAP-I) to sleep health education (SHE) in subjects receiving autologous hematopoietic cell transplant for multiple myeloma.


This randomized controlled study will evaluate the feasibility of implementing a mindfulness intervention targeting inpatient autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) recipients (first HCT) with multiple myeloma (MM) and the preliminary efficacy of Mindfulness Awareness Practices for Insomnia (MAP-I) vs. sleep health education (SHE) to improve insomnia outcomes, cellular and transcriptomic markers of inflammation, and insomnia associated behavioral symptoms (depression, fatigue).

Patients enrolled in this study will be randomized to either receive MAP-I or SHE starting 2-4 weeks prior to HCT. Patients will receive two sessions prior to inpatient admission for HCT, and four sessions in the two weeks of hospitalization following HCT, for a total of six intervention (or control) sessions.

Primary Objective: Determine the feasibility of implementing MAP-I among HCT recipients under first autologous HCT for MM.
