Abstract:

Fatigue in Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a major cause of disability and lower quality of life. It is often under-assessed by health care providers and under-recognized by individuals with PD as being part of their neurological disorder. A comprehensive literature review revealed that there is a lack of descriptive research from the individual’s perspective regarding fatigue definitions in PD, self-management strategies, and its impact on quality of life. The aim of this study was to uncover how individuals with PD define this symptom, the effect it has on one’s quality of life, self-management strategies to lessen fatigue, and how individuals perceive their health care providers recognize and manage their PD-related fatigue.
