Flinders University fatigue study
Monday 20 April 2009
Flinders University is conducting a study which “investigates the validity of a new measure of daytime fatigue – the Flinders Fatigue Scale (FFS).”
Here’s an introductory letter from Kate:
“How well do you sleep and how good do you feel during the day?
A research team from the School of Psychology at Flinders University is currently running a study investigating Australians’ experiences of sleep and how they feel during the time they are awake. One aim of the study includes trialling a new and promising measure of daytime fatigue. This new measure could provide opportunities for better identification and understanding of fatigue-related conditions.
The study takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. In return for completing the online questionnaire participants receive personalised feedback on their responses and all participants are also invited to enter the draw to win one of several cash prizes. Participation is greatly encouraged to facilitate research into the understanding and measurement of fatigue.
The study has received ethics approval and all information provided in the study remains confidential and is not personally identifiable. The questionnaire can be accessed at:
or paper copies can be requested by contacting the principal researcher via email at email@example.com.”
