AB  - PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the incidence of attentional
      fatigue and the relationship between sleep disturbance and attentional fatigue in
      working long-term breast cancer survivors (BCS). METHODS: A descriptive,
      correlation design was used. The data for this study were drawn from a larger
      descriptive study designed to understand the impact of cognitive dysfunction on
      work-related outcomes. Breast cancer survivors completed questionnaires regarding
      sleep disturbance, attentional fatigue, and demographic and medical
      characteristics. Sleep disturbance, a subscale of the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality
      Index, is measured by asking 9 questions about sleep disturbances. Attentional
      fatigue was measured by the Attentional Function Index. Descriptive statistics
      and multiple regression were performed to assess the impact of sleep disturbance 
      on attentional fatigue, controlling for covariates. RESULTS: Sixty-eight female
      BCS, ranging from 29 to 68 years old (mean [SD], 52.1 [8.6] years old) and, on
      average, 4.97 (SD, 3.36) years posttreatment, participated. Thirty-four percent
      of BCS had poor to moderate attention function. Sleep disturbance significantly
      predicted attentional fatigue (P < .05), explaining 16% of the variance, F4,57 = 
      2.68, P < .04, R = 0.16. CONCLUSIONS: Clinicians can assess and intervene to
      decrease sleep disturbance, which may also improve attentional fatigue in BCS.
      However, sleep disturbance is only 1 contributing factor. Further investigation
      into factors contributing to attentional fatigue in BCS is warranted.
