About the conference
We are delighted to invite you to this exciting CPD accredited conference presented by the leading national and international experts in research of the CFS/ME.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is sometimes dismissed as an "all in your head" illness. A diagnosis is given when a health care practitioner has ruled out other causes for the cluster of symptoms. However Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a complex and serious debilitating medical condition with a diverse range of symptoms. Profound physical and/or mental fatigue is the most well known, while others include pain, disturbed sleep patterns and gastrointestinal problems. CFS/ME affects about 200,000 people in the UK including children. Each patient experiences his or her own personal combination of symptoms. Sometime individuals with this disease remain frustrated by the lack of belief and support from health care providers, families, and friends.
This conference will focus on bringing healthcare professionals together to share their knowledge and achievements in diagnosing and managing this serious condition. Leading experts will discuss latest developments in understanding the aetiology and pathophysiology of CFS/ME; Update you on the recent developments of the research.
This conference is of great relevance to clinicians, general practitioners and doctors in training, counsellors, occupational therapists, nurses and paediatricians.
Topics will include
