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