PACKER MANAGING FATIGUE PROGRAM
Fatigue is the most distressing and least well-controlled symptom for people with many chronic conditions. The Packer Managing Fatigue Program has some of the strongest evidence of effectiveness across non-pharmacological interventions for fatigue. This occupational therapy intervention was first developed in 1995 for the management of severe fatigue due to post-polio syndrome. Since then, its effectiveness has been demonstrated across a variety of populations, delivery methods, and languages. Think Self-Management will provide occupational therapists and their colleagues with the training and resources they need to deliver the Packer Managing Fatigue Program to their clients. Visit the PMFP FAQ page to learn more about the intervention's development and delivery.
The Patient Reported Inventory of Self-Management of Chronic Conditions (PRISM-CC) allows clients to pinpoint and communicate the self-management tasks they find easy and those they find difficult. Ratings on seven domains improves providers’ ability to assess which supports and resources clients’ need to self-manage. PRISM-CC moves care from “one size fits all” interventions, to tailored and client-centred support. A patient-reported outcome measure (PROM), PRISM-CC measures changes over disease trajectories, improves clinical decision making, and evaluates clinical outcomes. Both a clinical and a research tool, PRISM-CC is easy to use across multiple settings and client populations.
