Deadline approaching - ME CFS PSP graphic

Help prioritise ME/CFS research by filling in this survey

A major UK project is looking for your input. They want to know what research you think should be funded in the future, and the deadline for adding your ideas is fast approaching. Your responses must be in by Monday 5th July 2021.

Find out more and add your ideas now: psp-me.co.uk/take-part

But who are they?

The ME/CFS Priority Setting Partnership is run by a steering group of people with ME, carers and clinicians. The project is funded by some of the largest research funders in the UK – the National Institute for Health Research, the Medical Research Council and the Scottish Chief Scientist Office. The process has been carried out over 100 times in other disease areas, resulting in new research findings, treatments and improved quality of life.

So what do I have to do?

The short survey asks you what questions you think research should answer about ME/CFS. You can write as little or as much as you like. They want you to think about your experience of ME/CFS. If we could answer any questions, which ones would have the most impact on your ME/CFS, or your ability to care for or support those with ME/CFS?

Take part in the first survey here: psp-me.co.uk/take-part

Remember the deadline is Monday 5th July.

This project is aiming to kickstart a new era of research into ME/CFS. An era that puts the priorities of those most affected by this disease first. It’s taking place at the same time as another separate project: DecodeME, the largest ever DNA study of ME/CFS, and both are modelling excellence in patient and public involvement.

Claire Dransfield, Research Officer and Coordinator of the ME/CFS Priority Setting Partnership, urges everyone to get involved:

“Your ideas matter, your experience matters, your priorities matter. This project is a powerful example of the importance of putting people affected at the heart of decision making, and has already enabled over 850 people to have their say. But we want to reach 1000, so take part before the 5th July deadline!”

  1. This is CFS research you are asking for. It has jackshit to do with M.E.. CFS gets loads of funding that leads to no where because to know how to treat something you need to understand what the person has wrong with them to begin with. That starts with a history and in depth investigation of persons issues. ME/CFS is CFS criteria and not related to M.E.. its not a Diagnosis of anything either.

 Black ME Voices: Q&A with Teona Studemire

With it being Black History Month, it was crucial to me to make sure we spotlighted someone from the ME/CFS and Long COVID community who is Black. Being Black and disabled is an entirely different experience. Not only do we deal with ableism, but we also deal with racism, especially medical racism. According to the
