The aim of this study is to determine the impact of the voice-activated smart speaker CBT-I components on insomnia symptoms among breast cancer survivors using a randomized clinical trial.


This study is a Phase II SBIR to further test efficacy of a voice-activated technology to deliver components of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) to breast cancer survivors (BCS) compared to a web-based control. Participants will be randomly assigned to the voice-activated or web-based treatment arms and will complete a 6-week intervention.
