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.
