AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What are the social, biological and behavioral factors that influence fatigue in adults and children?

Fatigue is commonly reported as prodromal to acute and chronic illness. At this point, we do not understand the etiology of fatigue; it is often confused with sleepiness. Longitudinal assessments of self-reported symptoms (fatigue, sleep, pain, depression), comorbid conditions, physical activity, and biomarkers will be collected monthly over 1 year to allow us to assess potential temporal effects of fatigue on daytime and nighttime (sleep) activity patterns in adults and children.
