Just last week I gave a presentation to the Norgewegian ME Association on how the new treatment guideline for ME/CFS is rooted in scientific evidence and reasoning. The video has now been posted:
By way of a teaser, here is the title and background info for the talk:
The New NICE Guideline for ME/CFS (2021): Following the Science
The new NICE Guideline for ME/CFS represents a significant update on recommended standards for treating and managing ME/CFS. This presentation will discuss the background to this update, the basis for the changes, and the reasons why (some) professional clinicians will always be resistant to updating their practice in line with the latest scientific advice.
Thanks to Margrethe Gustavsen and colleagues at ME Foreningen for all their work in producing the video.
