Results of probably the largest-ever survey of opinion among people with ME/CFS and their carers about what treatments and therapies work for them and what don't are available for downloading. The link to the PDF is at the bottom of this story.
The survey also shows what people with the illness want from their health and social care providers. They are contained in a 32-page report called ‘Managing my ME', which was published by The ME Association on 27 May 2010.
The survey – carried out online and through a paper questionnaire by the ME Association in the summer of 2008 – attracted huge interest when the questionnaire was held open online for over four months. A total of 3,494 people answered the questions online. Another 723 completed the paper questionnaire after it was circulated with our quarterly ME Essential magazine.
The results formed part of our submission to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) when they reviewed the guideline on ME/CFS.
