Conclusions:Shift workers and patients with OSA had similar sleepiness and mood deficits relative to healthy individuals.

With interdisciplinary integration, clinicians are able to collaborate to address patient care needs. Considerations include how to further integrate palliative and psychosocial care to achieve additional benefits and ongoing monitoring of changes in symptom burden.
