Project Details


Fatigue is feeling that we should stop (or not start) something. It normally subsides with rest, but in many medical conditions this doesn’t happen.

Having multiple long-term medical conditions, sometimes called multimorbidity, increases the chance of having severe fatigue. There is an urgent need to develop interventions to reduce fatigue in individuals with multiple long-term conditions. However, it is unclear which elements of fatigue are common across conditions and which are condition-specific. This makes it difficult to treat.

We will build a community to develop the understanding required to inform targeted interventions for fatigue in individuals with multiple long-term conditions.
