Of interest to:
Researchers and clinicians of all disciplines who work with patients/clients with disabling fatigue in chronic disease. This includes autoimmune disorders, chronic infection, chronic liver disease, pulmonary and heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, overtraining and stress syndromes and fatigue of unknown causes.

Format:

  • The morning will consist of short oral presentations by invited speakers to summarize areas of study and emerging questions.
  • The afternoon will include oral and poster presentations from among those submitted followed by facilitated small groups to enable networking and knowledge development. The day will end with a large group discussion of directions for further study of disabling fatigue.

Objectives:

  • To facilitate interdisciplinary discussion about disabling fatigue.
  • To develop research questions about disabling fatigue. For example how does fatigue vary among various medical conditions? What is the etiology of disabling fatigue? How can disabling fatigue be evaluated? How can disabling fatigue be optimally managed?
  • To further the development of an Alberta-wide collaboration among fatigue clinicians and researchers with the goal of funded research to answer some of the above questions.
