This presentation reports on a qualitative study that explored the impact of fatigue on the occupational engagement of young adults with rheumatic conditions. Young adult participants reported limited success in reducing fatigue, which often interfered with their ability to balance career, home life, and social participation. Results of this study will inform the development of an occupation-based fatigue management intervention tailored to young adults’ age-specific needs.
