The Sheffield ME & Fibromyalgia group are hosting a talk with Dr Charles Shepherd on Thursday 24th March 2022, 2pm. This event is free and open to all. More can be read here on the Sheffield site and details are shown below.
About the event
This event is particularly aimed at healthcare professionals, but anyone with experience or interest in the subject is welcome to join. The new NICE guideline was published in October 2021 after years of campaigning from patients and advocates. It covers the diagnosis and management of ME/CFS, and contains important changes compared to the previous version.
The event will consist of a 20 min presentation from Dr Shepherd followed by a Q&A session. We will take questions from Zoom participants via the chat, and from comments on the Facebook live stream.
Dr Shepherd's presentation will include:
- Introduction to the new NICE guideline on ME/CFS, and how it was developed
- Key differences with the 2007 guideline
- How to diagnose ME/CFS
- How to best support patients: specialist referrals and different aspects of management
- Implementation of the guideline

A handout will be sent to all registrants, together with other relevant resources.
