    I've been searching and searching for this and can't find it. What's worse, is I think I asked about this before and someone gave me a link. Either in email or here. I'd search more but I keep drifting.

    Can someone give me a link to the actual CFSAC recommendation. The one that HHS is misquoting as an excuse to hire the IOM.

    Sorry, can't help. Sounds like the sort of thing someone here should have a copy of though.

    This is the list of highest recommendations :

    http://www.hhs.gov/advcomcfs/recommendations/cfsac-recs513.pdf
    Clinical CFSAC recommends:
    •
    that you will promptly convene (by 12/31/12 or as soon as possible thereafter) at least one stakeholders’ (ME/CFS experts, patients, advocates) workshop in consultation with CFSAC members to reach a consensus for a case definition useful for research, diagnosis and treatment of ME/CFS beginning with the 2003 Canadian Consensus
    Definition for discussion purposes. (10/12)

    Hope that helps
