Study into impact of fatigue in rheumatic conditions (Oct 22, 2014)


The Discipline of Occupational Therapy, Rheumatology Department in St. James's Hospital and the National Disability Authority (NDA) are carrying out research into the impact of fatigue in rheumatic conditions on ability to work and the effectiveness of workplace accommodations. Research has found that up to 90% of people with rheumatic conditions have fatigue. However, further research is needed to assess what challenges fatigue is posing for people in the workplace and if fatigue affects a person's prospects of remaining in work. Employers are required by legislation to support those with conditions, such as a rheumatic conditions, to remain in the workplace. We would therefore also like to explore people with rheumatic conditions experiences of workplace accommodations. You are therefore being invited to participate in an online questionnaire exploring fatigue, impact of your rheumatic condition on work and the impact of work on your rheumatic condition and your quality of life.
