For school nurses
School nurses can help students with ME/CFS by believing students when they need assistance and by providing a quiet place to rest during the day. They can also help by keeping track of medications and side effects, and by keeping track of day-to-day variations in condition and functioning. Please see the documents below for more information.
“Evaluating ME/CFS: A Checklist for School Nurses” (Bell, 2009).
“Key Aspects of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) in Children and Adolescents” is a presentation for school nurses by Dr. Alan Gurwitt at the Northeastern University School Health Institute, August 2012 (Gurwitt, 2012).
