The Role of Fatigue in Depressive Disorders & Using Biomarkers for Personalized Treatment

Depression Professional Development

Fatigue frequently occurs in depression, but its importance as a leading cause of morbidity is largely underappreciated. While fatigue is easy to observe, it is difficult to characterize. It can be a prodromal symptom of depression as well as a core component of acute illness; it can be a side effect of antidepressants, a result of sleep disturbance or a residual symptom of depression. The consequences are many: increased severity of depression, decreased productivity, cognitive dysfunction and an increased risk of recurrence.

This interactive program will define and examine the many manifestations and ramifications of fatigue in depression. Participants will learn to define the multifactorial symptom domains of fatigue, identify the role of fatigue in the prodromal, acute and maintenance phases of depression, and employ cutting-edge psychopharmacologic strategies to minimize the occurrence and adverse consequences of fatigue.  The program also aims to educate clinicians about the current role of biomarkers in psychiatry and the increased interest in the clinical application of psychiatric biomarkers.
