Clinic at the Royal Children's Hospital

Chronic fatigue is a potentially debilitating syndrome which can affect people of all ages, including children and adolescents. Symptoms include exhaustion, neurocognitive problems, sleep disturbance and somatic complaints. Whilst there is no cure, there are effective management strategies for chronic fatigue syndrome that allow affected individuals to remain active and productive. These strategies need to be tailored to individual circumstances and needs.

The following practitioners at CPMG can be of service in assessing and managing children and adolescents with chronic fatigue:
