The International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME (IACFS/ME) has published a Primer for clinical practitioners. It is available as a PDF file and is free to download, though donations are invited. A 42 page spiral bound print booklet can be purchased for $15 from the BookPatch website.

ME/CFS: a Primer for Clinical Practitioners has been developed by an international team of practitioners led by Dr Fred Friedberg.

Highlights of the Primer include:

  • A summary of the pathophysiological effects of ME/CFS to date
  • A user-friendly diagnostic worksheet utilizing the Canadian Consensus Criteria
  • Straightforward treatment suggestions covering an array of ME/CFS symptoms
  • Emphasis on post-exertional malaise and activity management
  • Sections on special populations/ problems (e.g. severely affected, pediatric ME/CFS, pregnancy)
