Choosing Wisely National Meeting In Canberra
Friday 1 June 2018
ME/CFS Australia (SA)
Thank you to Eleanor Flowers, fellow advocate in the ACT, who is presenting our poster at today's Choosing Wisely National Meeting in Canberra.
People at the conference from outside the ME/CFS community are already showing considerable interest in our poster and sharing it on social media!
The poster describes how ME/CFS patients have been instrumental in investigating the science behind the potentially harmful Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) and advocating for the removal of GET from clinical practice for ME/CFS.
You can access a PowerPoint version of the poster, with hyperlinks to videos and articles, here:
While the poster is authored by ME/CFS Australia (SA) Chair, Penelope McMillan, it has been developed with considerable help from other members of our management committee and with support from people in the #MillionsMissing working group of #MEAction Network Australia. Presentation in the ACT has been managed by Eleanor, as mentioned above, and Libby Steeper, who also sponsored printing of the poster. Our sincere thanks to all involved.
