Volunteers wanted for online study

Saturday 15 November 2008

University of New EnglandResearchers at the University of New England are looking for volunteers over the age of 18 with fatigue issues/disorders to participate in an online study.

We strongly encourage our members to participate in research into ME/CFS – even those with a psychological focus. We have been asked to post a call for participants in this study. We do so with some concerns about it and would encourage anyone who participates to dialogue with the researchers to ensure that they are right up to speed with the biological and non-psychological aspects of the condition.

Project Title: Predictors of subjective fatigue in three samples: chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple sclerosis patients and university student controls

Investigators: Rhonda Brown, PhD.; Einar B. Thorsteinsson, PhD., University of New England, Armidale, NSW 2350

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, viral infection symptoms, sleep disturbance, and a number of specific stressors, unhealthy behaviours, psychosocial factors, and cognitions. Fatigue often has a physiological basis (e.g. viral infection), but previous research has shown that fatigue also has psychological aspects. This research is intended to help us better understand the way in which psychological factors impact on fatigue over a period of time. Participants will be asked to complete set of questionnaires three times (i.e., now, 6 months from now, and then 12 months from now).
