A new era for Northern Ireland, as recruitment for a new ME-CFS Clinical Lead (Consultant) gets underway in April 2018

This timely workshop is designed for all NHS healthcare providers, decision makers, university lecturers, medical students, teaching staff and benefits agency representatives, to coincide with the establishment of new NHS services for ME/CFS patients. World leading clinicians and researchers in this field, from Stanford University, ME/CFS Initiative and John Hopkins Children's Center, will provide a better understanding towards accurate diagnosis, management and treatment of the disease.

NICE Guidelines for ME/CFS is now under review, due to global scientific breakthroughs and reports of the ineffectiveness and harms caused by current recommendations of graded exercise therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, the review report will not be published until October 2020. During this transition period, this unmissable event will provide all primary care staff with a greater knowledge on how best to serve and protect this large patient population in Northern Ireland.
