Abstract

The combined approach of graded activity and cognitive behaviour therapy in the treatment and management of chronic fatigue syndrome within an inpatient NHS neurology ward is discussed. A retrospective medical audit of 28 patients indicated that 57% had an increased activity level six months following discharge. Controlled clinical studies are required to examine the benefit and effect of the combined treatment approach discussed.
