ME Awareness Week Debrief

The week of 11th to 17th May 2020 was ME Awareness week and we decided to release a slide a day aimed at physiotherapists to provide a general overview of issues that our profession needs to be aware of.


The whole slide deck is now available here, and we’re hoping it could be used in future as educational material.


On 12th May we were thrilled to announce the funding for our first piece of research. If you missed this announcement you can read more about it here.


As well as publishing the slides we were busy in the background contributing to a document produced by the World Confederation for Physical Therapists, who represent physiotherapists and their organisations across the globe. They were producing a briefing paper regarding their response to Covid-19 about the rehabilitation of patients and the vital role of the physiotherapist.


We were able to contribute a piece about post viral fatigue syndrome and the potential development of ME. It was great to get in before publication so that this important message was included and awareness can be raised in our profession across the world.

The full document can be found here, and our section is on page 7.


We’ve been up to a few other things in the last couple of weeks but are not in a position to announce them yet… more to come next month!
