Abstract: The objective of this descriptive study is to explore the relationships between pain, sleep disturbance, and quality of life among Palestinian patients diagnosed with cancer in the West Bank. The quality of life questionnaire, visual analogue pain scale, and physical health status were used in data collection. Pain and sleep disturbance showed high negative correlations with functional scales of quality of life and positive with symptom scales. The findings of this study give evidence about the importance of assessing pain and sleep quality among Palestinian patients with cancer.
