The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    I would be interested in people's thoughts on the IACFS/ME Primer http://iacfsme.org/Home/Primer/tabid/509/Default.aspx vs International Consensus Primer http://www.hetalternatief.org/ICC primer 2012.pdf .

    I'm particularly interested in terms of using them on a large scale e.g. for sending to all the GPs in a country* - which would you think is better and why?

    I think both have a lot going for them.

    The IACFS/ME website says:
    So it could be improved in a future edition. I'm just about to try to write some comments to send in now but might send in more also depending on points made** (and others could also).

    There are individual threads on the two already:
    International Consensus Primer: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?posts/303639/
    IACFS/ME Primer http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/me-cfs-primer-for-clinical-practitioners.17476/
    so what I'm particularly interested in are differences between the two.

    * I find it more interesting to discuss countries outside the UK (the UK which already has the NICE guidelines). But people can discuss what they like.
    ** I'm not taking on any responsibility to collate the feedback from this thread and pass it on as I doubt I'll personally agree with every single point raised so it's best for people themselves to submit their own points to do them justice.

    This piece

    contrasts the CDC toolkit with the IACFS/ME Primer.

    Another piece to do a similar thing is:
    I'm not expecting anyone to do anything similar, just thought it was worth mentioning.
