Hi All, This study forms a large part of my course, in which it is necessary to carry out a study/project based in the area of medicine, and necessary to gather 200 participants, suffering from CFS, to answer a questionnaire. The names and addresses of participants is not going to be asked for, however, there will be an option to state which County you live in, as this can give me a better indication of services for CFS in your area. All data protection acts apply and no personal information will be disclosed. The study will look into areas such as the classification of CFS, debating the Royal College of General Practitioners mental health guidelines in which they classified CFS as mental health disorder in 2007/8 only to revoke it the same year. The study will examine patients views on this mental health classification vs a physical origin for CFS, such as the XMRV virus. I will also be looking at effective treatments, such as cognitive behavioural therapy vs traditional drug treatments etc. If you have any questions or would like to participate, please send me a private message and include your email address so I may send you a copy of the questionnaire to complete. Many Kind Regards Linzi. It may be a point of reassurance to know that permission has be granted to post this thread by the moderater of this site.
