Oops. I think this may already have another thread.
Not sure how to delete
Just posting a link to the journal here, in case helpful:
Supportive symptomatic treatment. This is basically palliative care/behavioral medicine. Got orthostatic intolerance? here, try this electrolyte drink... (We don't do IV here because the government doesn't think you are worthy of them)
Cognitive dysfunction? Try meditation. And so on.
'patient centered care approach'? What does that even mean? Institutions that are self-proclaimed as patient-centered care are quickly retreating back when the patient actually asks for science-based treatments, and access to off-labeled treatments.
Essentially all that is described here is education program which is the other way to say CBT and pacing to regain abilities to plan activities and begin to make slow incremental improvement to functionality is the other way to say 'rehab' or GET.
Nothing new here, extremely conservative.
Published in 'Environmental medicine'. Why branding this disease as an environmental disease? Global warming anyone? we caught this from our environment? Then why is HIV/AIDs not an environemntal disease? MS? Alzeimer? Cancer?
The other thread is here:
