An Intervention for Cardiac Arrest Survivors With Chronic Fatigue

2016-08-15 09:39:27 | BioPortfolio


The primary aim was to examine the feasibility of an Energy Conservation + Problem Solving Therapy (EC+PST) intervention delivered over the telephone and to evaluate the preliminary intervention effect on fatigue impact in daily activities in post-cardiac arrest (CA) adults with chronic fatigue.


The primary aim was to examine the feasibility of recruiting and retaining participants for an Energy Conservation + Problem Solving Therapy (EC+PST) intervention delivered over the telephone, to evaluate the acceptability of the intervention, and to assess the appropriateness of the outcome measures. The secondary aim was to evaluate the preliminary intervention effect on fatigue impact, activity performance, and participation in daily activities in post-cardiac arrest (CA) adults with chronic fatigue.
