National Fatigue Survey Examines Common Factors in Fatigue Across Chronic Medical Conditions
Date:1/11/2010

The survey is open to adults with a chronic medical condition, and can be completed anonymously. It can be accessed at: http://research.fit.edu/fmi. Participation by any adult with a chronic disorder is encouraged. The survey will be closed on Feb. 7, 2010.

Melbourne, Fla. (Vocus) January 11, 2010 -- The internet-based National Fatigue Survey currently being conducted by the Fatigue Management Institute of Florida Institute of Technology will be the first survey to examine common factors in persistent fatigue across multiple chronic medical disorders. Chronic illness-related fatigue is now recognized as one of the most perplexing and troublesome difficulties for individuals suffering from chronic illness, impacting all aspects of daily life.

Unlike normal fatigue, chronic illness-related fatigue is typically unrelated to exertion, is persistent or unpredictably recurrent, and is perceived as unavoidable and uncontrollable.

The findings of the survey will allow researchers to clarify the characteristics and fatigue management strategies that are most central to fatigue associated with chronic medical disorders, and will guide research and development of cognitive and behavioral fatigue management strategies. Evidence-based fatigue self-management programs incorporating these techniques will facilitate more integrated behavioral healthcare for the increasing population of adults aging with a chronic illness.

The survey is open to adults with a chronic medical condition, and can be completed anonymously. It can be accessed at: http://research.fit.edu/fmi. Participation by any adult with a chronic disorder is encouraged. The survey will be closed on Feb. 7, 2010.

For further information contact Dr. Thom Harrell, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Fatigue Management Institute, at tharrell(at)fit(dot)edu or 321-674-8104.
