In addition to treating patients, one of the major initiatives at Bateman Horne Center is to educate clinicians, researchers, and patients about ME/CFS. On April 27, BHC will be offering continuing medical education (CME) for clinicians on ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia, taught by Dr. Lucinda Bateman. Clinicians are required to do a certain amount of CME to retain their medical licenses, and this course will earn clinicians 4 CME credits.
Clinicians who attend will learn about the major presenting features of ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia, how exercise affects people with these conditions, and how to help patients identify their activity tolerance, among other topics. As a follow-up to the CME course, clinicians will also get information about the research that BHC participates in, and how they can refer patients to BHC for research projects.
