Scottish Good Practice Statement on ME-CFS

GPG

The purpose of this Scottish Good Practice Statement is to provide general practitioners with guidance that can be used to assist with the differential diagnosis and clinical management of patients with ME-CFS.

It contains more detailed information and underpins two other summary documents, prepared at the same time:

This Good Practice Statement is also primarily about the Care of Adults with ME-CFS, but in the absence as yet of a separate Good Practice Statement on Children with ME-CFS, interim guidance on the management of children and young people with ME-CFS is offered in Section 4. Further interim guidance on those severely affected, is offered in Section 5. Research and development issues are considered in Section 6. Further advice for patient support and sources of further assistance are provided in Section 7 and Appendix 1. It is hoped that these documents will be the first of a series which will inform health professionals on the management of ME-CFS.
