Unexplained Chronic Fatigue Questionnaire Study - Volunteers Needed
From Kathleen O'Connor at
The University of Utah:
Participants wanted for study of chronic fatigue
Individuals who have had severe, unexplained fatigue for at least six months and who have no serious abnormalities on medical tests are wanted for a study of chronic fatigue. Patients who qualify for the study will be asked to complete three questionnaires over a six month period. Participating in the study will not alter the treatment that your physician gives you. The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether patients treated by certain types of physicians improve faster than patients treated by other types of physicians. If you may be interested in participating in this study, please contact the study coordinator, Kathleen O’Connor at (801) 587-4741. For more information email kathleen.oconnor@ hci.utah.edu or visit our website at https://hci- as2.hci.utah. edu/CFSurvey/ app.
[An excerpt under the "About" section at the given website:
"There will be no costs to you for participating in the study.
We will send you $25 if you complete two questionnaires, one given to you at the time you enroll and a second given to you three months later. We will send another $25 to you for completing a questionnaire six months after you enroll. If you need to get results of your laboratory tests from physicians other than the physician who told you about this study, we will give you an additional $15 for giving us the results of all of these tests."]
