The UNSW Fatigue Clinic provides evidence-based healthcare for people living with fatigue conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), post-cancer fatigue (PCF) 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, or PIFS. The Clinic collaborates closely with the National Centre for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) in clinical services for patients with PCF, and in research studies of the biological basis treatments for fatigue conditions.
The Fatigue Clinic Program aims to improve the lives of those living with these conditions to 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 medical and health professionals with expertise in the areas of exercise physiology and clinical psychology, with specialist medical support in infectious diseases and oncology.
Through innovative research, the UNSW Fatigue Clinic 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.
