This article presents the contrasting European and American perspectives on cancer-related fatigue and its impact on functioning in survivors with regard to 3 sections (state of the art, intervention studies, and future areas of research), as well as research gaps and future directions for research and collaboration related to fatigue. Coordinated intercontinental efforts would increase understanding of the biological, psychological, and social mechanisms underlying fatigue and assist in future intervention studies as well as revisions to clinical guidelines.
