Fatigue after stroke is common and distressing to patients. The best way to treat this fatigue is uncertain. Theoretically, several different interventions may be of benefit. This study aimed to determine whether any treatment for fatigue after stroke reduces the proportion of patients with fatigue, or fatigue severity, or both,
and to determine the effect of treatment on health-related quality of life, disability, dependency and death, and whether such treatments are cost effective.
