ME: International Consensus Primer for Medical Practitioners
Tuesday 16 October 2012
One year ago, a 26-member International Consensus Panel, independent of any sponsoring organization, published International Consensus Criteria (ICC) for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis,intended to educate primary care physicians and specialists in internal medicine. The ICC were published in the October 2011 issue of the Journal of Internal Medicine (Carruthers BM, et al.) and are available free in a PDF file here.
And now the Panel has created a Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Adult & Paediatric International Consensus Primer (ICP) for Medical Practitioners, building on the ICC to provide easy-to-use diagnostic and treatment guidelines. It is available free in PDF format here: http://hetalternatief.org/ICC%20primer%202012.pdf
