Background & Aims: Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy suffer from major side effects including sleep disorders. The Sleep problems affected ability of patients to complete the treatment, recovery, survival and ultimately affected good quality of life. The aim of this study was to determine prevalence of sleep disorder and its related factors in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Material & Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted at Kermanshah, Iran 2013. In overall, 140 cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy in two University affiliated hospitals, recruited in study by random sampling. Data were collected by standard questionnaires and for analyze the data, Chi-square, Mann– Whitney test; Kruskal Wallis test and correlation coefficient were used. P- value < 0.05 was considered significant.

Results: The overall prevalence of poor sleep quality was 51.4%. Statistical analysis showed that the history of previous surgical treatment (P= 0.027), hospitalized patients (P= 0.047), having fatigue (P= 0.012), having pain (P= 0.001) and pain intensity (P= 0.0001) were the main factors associated with poor sleep quality.

Conclusions: According to results of the present study, design and planning of nursing interventions focused on careful assessments and management of pain and fatigue is recommended to improving the patients sleep quality.
