I have the Canadian documents on my reading list. I want to add a PEM article because I think PEM is one of the two most difficult concepts for doctors to understand. So I want to underscore this by having a good standalone article. BTW, the other difficult subject for doctors is OI. But I already have an extra article for this.What a great idea Andrew - a reading list for doctors. I'd love to see what you have on it. I never got beyond the Canadian Consensus Overview.
The first list I drew up came as a result of my fuming about how doctors refer us to Rheumatologists, and they never know anything. I sent the list to American College of Rheumatology. I figured they would ignore it, but at least I would have tried.So, if GP's have this information, what will change, and will it be the best advice? I don't know.
Looks like a good candidate.Here's some good work done @ the University of Pacific with Dr. Bateman:
Thanks for looking. As for PDF files, I would not be able to use that anyway. I need to have something a doctor can see on the Web via a link.It's frustrating since I have access to many medical journals but depending on the computer I'm at, I may or may not be able to download a .pdf file.
I need some help. I'm updating my reading list for doctors. I'm looking for a good article about post exertion malaise. It would be good if the article included some citations.
For post-exertional malaise, I too would recommend...
That is an amazing list you posted. It's the most comprehensive list I've seen. I wish we had one for every topic. It's great.Andrew,
Help is on its way. I'am a foreigner, so don't bother my English. I would like to recommend de Becker e.a., VanNess, and Paul. I made this list - below. I would not recommend the ones with a ( ).
Maybe you could at least use de Becker, Lane, Paul. L. etc etc.
At your service!
I'm doing something similar, basically putting together a reader for my doctor (like I used to for my students) of what I think is the most relevant information for him to know for treating patients in a constrained clinical setting (both time and money).
I think it would be a great idea for us to share what we're putting into our reader/reading list. And I know at the moment I'm looking for good research on anti-viral treatments.
Thanks, these look very helpful.

Hmm, in thinking about it, realize we want one page that everyone can print out to bring to their doctor. I guess then we'd need a preliminary thread like this, Submit PEM articles for Doctor's Reading List, and then someone who will collate them all on one locked thread, Doctor's Reading List: PEM
I don't know. What does everyone think? Do you think that will work? Do you think it would be worth doing? (it seems wonderful to she who wants to database the world, but am I going too far?)
If people think it would be valuable, I'll volunteer to do it for PEM. Am writing a note to myself to tackle it when I feel a bit better. If anyone wants it faster, or has already done it, I will cede my spot in the volunteer line - just let me know.
What I'm thinking of doing is starting a new thread about resource lists for doctors. I would post my list, Michelle could post a list, and anyone else could post a list. People could also offer feedback on the lists. OTOH, what Lugdunum did was different, and probably more amazing. I didn't realize there were that may studies about PEM.
