MELBOURNE, FLA.—The Fatigue Management Institute of Florida Institute of Technology has launched the National Chronic FatigueSurvey,an internet-based surveyof fatigue related to chronic illness. The survey is designed to gather information on the nature and impact of fatigue associated with chronic medical disorders.
The institute will use survey findings to better describe the experience and severity of fatigue related to chronic medical conditions. This effort is expected to contribute to the development of improved techniques for managing fatigue. The Survey is open to adults with a chronic medical condition and can be completed anonymously. It may be accessed at: http://research.fit.edu/fmi.
