“Core Guidance NG206: Key extracts from the ME/CFS guideline published by NICE October 2021, with a focus on changes that are required and the care and support of severely affected patients. Also highlights the health professional’s duty, in complying with the law on informed consent, to explain potential risks as well as benefits of the course of action being recommended to their patient.”

These three educational videos introduce what ME/CFS is, how to diagnose it and how to manage the most common symptoms.
The videos are adapted from recordings I created for the 1st year medical students at the University of Calgary. They are suitable for anyone relatively new to the disease: patients, loved ones, carers and health care practitioners.
The recordings on diagnosis and management include audio clips from real patients sharing their experience.Thank you to all of the contributors ranging from people who are significantly recovered and people who remain severely ill.
