Dear Members, Colleagues and All who are interested in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
On behalf of the board of directors of the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME), I am pleased to announce the release of the ME/CFS Primer for Clinical Practitioners. (ME/CFS and CFS/ME are equivalent terms.) The goal of the Primer is to provide the information necessary for clinicians to understand, diagnose, and manage the symptoms of ME/CFS. The text was developed over two years by the 11-member Primer Committee and externally reviewed by a number of international ME/CFS specialists and advocates.
Highlights of the Primer include:
The full Primer document is available on the IACFS/ME website (Link to Primer) in a printer-friendly format with a requested donation of $15 to help continue the work of IACFS/ME. We hope you find the Primer to be a useful adjunct to your practice and a worthy companion to your reference library.
With best regards,
Fred Friedberg, PhD
