The UNSW Fatigue Clinic provides evidence-based healthcare for people living with fatigue conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), post-cancer fatigue (PCF), post-viral fatigue syndrome (PVFS), or post-infective fatigue syndrome (PIFS).
Located at University of New South Wales, the UNSW Fatigue Clinic is Australia’s only integrated centre of research and clinical services focused on improving the health of people who have CFS, PCF, PVFS or PIFS. Given the recent growing awareness that some patients with Long-COVID have a post-viral fatigue syndrome, we are now also offering care for patients with this condition.
The UNSW Fatigue Clinic Program aims to improve the lives of those living with these conditions to better undertake the activities of everyday life, by applying activity pacing followed by graded physical and cognitive activity training, in combination with cognitive behavioural interventions to manage disturbances in sleep and mood. This service is conducted by a team of allied health professionals with expertise in the areas of exercise physiology and clinical psychology, with specialist medical support.
Through innovative research, the UNSW Fatigue Clinic Research Program aims to better understand the underlying disease mechanisms, to develop new treatments and to improve existing ones, and to develop education programs for healthcare providers and patients in relation to the diagnosis and management of the fatigue conditions.
