There is a free accredited CPD module for GPs and health professionals on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), available at www.studyprn.com/p/chronic-fatigue-syndrome
Dr Nina Muirhead developed the module in partnership with the UK CFS/M.E. Research Collaborative. It is based on clinical case studies, which aim to typify patients who may or may not display signs and symptoms of M.E./CFS, and reflects emerging biomedical evidence, evolving international discussions and the patient perspective.
The module also touches on Long Covid and Fibromyalgia.
The module is free, usually takes under an hour to complete, and provides one CPD point towards revalidation.
Any health professional who completes this module should feel more confident to diagnose and manage the symptoms of M.E./CFS, leading to reduced time in the consultation room and an increased quality of life for patients.
A complementary Learn about M.E. podcast offers insights of people living with M.E. and clinicians on the application of the module at www.buzzsprout.com/1717775/8027624
It features Dr Muirhead, a GP who has found the module helpful, and two ME sufferers. You can find out more at www.actionforme.org.uk/CPDforMECFS
The DGMEFM Network provides a mutual support network within the region for sufferers and carers of those with ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and Long Covid (with Post Exertional Malaise). dgmefm.org.uk/
