‘How to care for patients with CFS/ME’, Nursing Times, 11 October 2011

October 10, 2011


Amanda McGough, specialist ME/CFS nurse with South Tees Hospital Foundation Trust, has written about the care of patients with ME/CFS in today's ‘Nursing Times'.

It comes in the form of a single page, ‘5-minute briefing' in the journal's Nursing Practice section. The piece is subtitled: ‘Managing CFS/ME promptly reduces the possibility of lasting impairment and disability.'

There's a five-paragraph introduction, five key points to consider, a note about when to contact the nurse specialist and a short ‘Guidance and Resources' section.

The article can be downloaded as a pdf straight to one's screen by clicking on the link HERE.

  1. ‘Managing CFS/ME promptly reduces the possibility of lasting impairment and disability.’

    There is no scientific basis for such a statement.

    Patients are banned from donating blood for life and from donating deceased tissue.
