The Department of Occupational Therapy presents its third annual research colloquium.

What do we know about fatigue in clinical populations?

Fatigue is among the most frequent symptoms observed among neurological and other medical populations.  It is also one of the most misunderstood and difficult to assess symptoms.  This talk will provide an overview of our current conceptualization of fatigue, beginning with its history and definition, its assessment and measurement, and the nature of fatigue in the general population, followed by a detailed discussion of fatigue in various clinical populations.  The discussion will continue with what is known about the treatment of fatigue and end with a new conceptual model of fatigue and how this model should drive future research and clinical approaches.
