Free Think GP Education Modules
First module: Busting the myths and redefining myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)
This module aims to educate GPs and others working in primary care about our evolving understanding of ME/CFS as an illness. In addition, it addresses myths surrounding diagnosis and treatment.
Second module: Ensuring a patient-centred approach to care for people living with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)
This module focuses on quality of life, and incorporating the multidisciplinary team.
It provides details on making a differential diagnosis, the non-core symptoms of ME/CFS, management in specific populations, and the development of a patient-centred treatment plan.
