What Primary Care practitioners need to know about the new NICE guideline for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome in adults

Caroline Kingdon’s new paper on the NICE guideline for ME was co-written with #MEAction UK volunteer Adam Lowe, as well as Charles Shepherd of the ME Association and Luis Nacul of the London School of Tropical Medicine. 

As members of the NICE guideline development committee, the authors wrote this paper with GPs and primary care practitioners in mind. It explains the key messages of the guideline, including the need for better and earlier diagnosis, better treatment and the need to undo the harm caused by the stigma that sometimes still surrounds ME. The paper also describes the reasons why GET is no longer recommended.

The paper is currently a preprint, which means it hasn’t yet been peer reviewed, but you can access it online for free. The paper has had over 100 downloads already.

 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
