ME/CFS is a chronic, complex, disabling condition which affects millions of people worldwide, often beginning during adolescence or early adulthood. Because most medical schools and educational resources do not cover ME/CFS adequately, patients are often met with skepticism and up to 90% of those afflicted remain undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed. Even when patients are diagnosed, healthcare providers often do not feel confident about managing their condition. Finally, accumulating evidence has resulted in a recent sea change in the standard of care: graded exercise therapy (GET) ad cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) are no longer considered to be effective and may even cause harm. For these reasons, healthcare professionals would benefit both from basic education about ME/CFS as well as updated information regarding treatment and clinical care.
