International Adult & Paediatric ME Consensus Primer for Clinicians: Online Free

  [ 10 votes ]   [ 2 Comments ]
www.ProHealth.com • October 4, 2012


One year ago, a 26-member International Consensus Panel, independent of any sponsoring organization, published International Consensus Criteria (ICC) for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, intended to educate primary care physicians and specialists in internal medicine. The ICC were published in the October 2011 issue of the Journal of Internal Medicine (Carruthers BM, et al.) and are available free in a PDF file here.

And now the Panel has created a Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Adult & Paediatric International Consensus Primer (ICP) for Medical Practitioners, building on the ICC to provide easy-to-use diagnostic and treatment guidelines. It is available free in PDF format here: http://hetalternatief.org/ICC%20primer%202012.pdf

The new ME Primer "can be downloaded, posted on websites, and reprinted, provided people comply with all the conditions listed on the title page," writes co-editor Marj van de Sande in the following announcement issued Oct 3, 2012.

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis – Adult & Paediatric: International Consensus Primer for Medical Practitioners

The Myalgic Encephalomyelitis International Consensus Panel is pleased to announce that the International Consensus Primer (ICP) for ME has been completed.  The ICP is a one stop, user-friendly reference that specifically targets primary care physicians and specialists in internal medicine.

Background:
An International Consensus Panel was formed with the purpose of developing criteria and a physicians’ primer for ME based on current knowledge. The 26 member panel, consisting of clinicians, research investigators, teaching faculty, and an independent educator, represent diverse backgrounds, medical specialities and geographical regions. Collectively the members of the panel have diagnosed and/or treated more than 50 000 patients who have ME, have approximately 500 years of both clinical and teaching experience and have authored hundreds of peer-reviewed publications.

Criteria:
The International Consensus Criteria (ICC) were published in the Journal of Internal Medicine in 2011.
(http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2796.2011.02428.x/full)

Primer:
The (ME-ICP) includes a summary of pathophysiological findings, the ICC, diagnostic and treatment guidelines and appendices. The ICP represents the collective wisdom and experience of the members of the panel gleaned through research and hundreds of thousands of hours of clinical investigations, upon which the ICC and ICP are based. The panel hopes that the ICP will enhance clarity and understanding of ME, consistency of diagnosis and optimal treatment internationally.

The ICP is a not-for-profit educational document that can be downloaded, posted on websites, and reprinted providing people comply with all the conditions listed on the title page.

This is a very valuable tool for patients like us, as many doctors do not fully grasp the intensity of this illness.

Thank you very much for providing this as a free download!

Please hold off reprinting large numbers of the primer until I post an update message. Presently the Primer has a blank back cover. We are thinking of adding content on the back cover. It should be done in the next couple of weeks.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
