As a complex multidimensional construct, fatigue may play an important role in the physical and psychosocial functioning of youth with chronic pain. Based on a model previously tested in adults, the current study similarly utilized Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement System (PROMIS) to examine how fatigue contributes to functional outcomes for youth with chronic pain. The model tested self-reported ratings of pain intensity, depressive symptoms, and sleep disturbance as predictors of outcomes (mobility, pain-related interference, and school functioning) as mediated by ratings of fatigue.
