The 2022 Clinical & Research Guide (The ‘Purple Book’) is now available to order! 

We are very pleased to announce that the 2022 edition of the ME Association’s ME/CFS/PVFS Clinical and Research Guide is now available to purchase from the website shop and that a Kindle version will soon be available on Amazon. 

The content of this extensive guide has been completely revised and brought right up to date by Dr Charles Shepherd (Hon. Medical Adviser) and the presentation has been greatly improved by Caroline Cavey (Magazine editor and graphic designer). 

It is an authoritative publication representing the most comprehensive, evidence-based summary currently available and contains everything that health professionals and patients need to know about this devastating neurological disease. 

The new booklet provides 180 pages of clinical and research information about ME/CFS/PVFS. Previous editions have proved extremely popular with both healthcare professionals, patients, and the people who care for them.  

We hope this latest version will prove just as helpful. 

Free copies for healthcare professionals 

We are happy to provide free hard copies of the booklet to any healthcare professional (HCP) who would like one. Patients can also nominate their GPs etc. to receive a booklet. 

We hope to be sending this latest edition to approximately 1,000 HCPs at the end of May, so please complete the sign-up form on the website as soon as possible if you’d like to be included. HCPs will also receive the quarterly ‘ME Medical’ magazine but are free to opt-out from these mailings at any time. 

ME = Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Encephalopathy. CFS = Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. PVFS = Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome.
