New Free-Access Fibromyalgia Management Guide for Primary Care Doctors, Online Now

  [ 15 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • May 17, 2012


Four fibromyalgia specialists - Lesley M Arnold, Daniel J Clauw, L Jean Dunegan, and Dennis C Turk – have developed an educational framework that primary care doctors can use as a guide to best practices in fibromyalgia case management.

The guide - A Framework for Fibromyalgia Management for Primary Care Providers - was published in the May 2012 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and can be accessed online free HERE. (Scroll down to read all, or click on items of interest in the Article Outline.)

The guide is written in such a way that it can help fibromyalgia patients inform themselves as it educates and guides their physicians. 

Special features include:

1. A flow chart of key FM case management tasks and objectives (see “Core Principles”). 

2. A table of basic pharmaceutical therapy guidance – e.g., dosing considerations and possible outcomes/implications for each FDA-approved drug option mentioned.

3. Similar information regarding non-drug therapies.

4. Links to educational resources that are helpful to inform patients;

5. And, for physicians, links to 45 footnoted sources in the medical literature that provide 'evidence-based' background for many aspects of fibromyalgia and FM patient care discussed in the guide.

The new Framework for Fibromyalgia Management for Primary Care Providers is part of the FibroCollaborative Working Group’s 2010 “Roadmap for Change” – an initiative sponsored by Pfizer and supported by representatives of more than 20 fibromyalgia medical / professional and advocacy organizations across the US. Members are listed in a footnote to the guide.
