Fact sheets etc for health practitioners...?



  • Hey forum folks!

    I didn't know where to put this so I hope this is the right(-ish?) place! If not, feel free, mods, to move it to a better suited spot.

    Can any body please direct me to some links/docs/resources for practitioner education/awareness?

    I am seeing a psychologist who seems to not really understand MECFS or 'believe it is real'. I'm not a hundred percent sure (but let's be real, we've all been there)...My sense is they may think it is just depression.

    Aaaaanyway, in case we have a conversation about it, are there any easy-to-digest but medico-speak-enough literature/links I can direct them to that basically myth bust any of the myths by a credible source?

    I found this from the CDC but yeah if there is anything that I could use to say 'if you'd like more information from such and such institutions/credible organisations/bodies etc.... check such and such out" - to just fully bust those myths out of the water if you know what I mean.

    Much gratitude in advance for any support and suggestions ❤ Thank you

    Best of luck with your psychologist @coco (and nice find on those CDC links - they're solid on PEM and pacing if I recall correctly). In case it helps, here's a link to Emerge's page on practitioner eduction - they've got an accredited GP education module there, and a bunch of good resources linked at the bottom of the page as well (like the 2014 ICC primer):
