International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I think people have people have to be careful when they ask for education programs on CFS.

    Personally I would not be happy for doctors to be taught that what patients need is graded exercise therapy (GET) and CBT based on GET.

    But education courses esp. by random professionals are much more likely to recommend them than many treatments professionals use but which there isn't a good "evidence base" (randomised controlled trials).

    The approach I've prepared is that useful documents are drawn up and then circulated rather than just asking for education but not knowing what you'll get.

    I've lots and lots and lots of work to do so I may not be able to contribute much to this thread but thought I'd start a thread here rather than hijacking somebody else's thread.
