    The Canterbury Health Pathways team has let me know that they will inform teams in other regions about the webinar. Probably wouldn't hurt to enquire if you live in a region where HP is used.

    I've had very positive feedback from a Mum of a teen after I recommended Dr Cathy Ferguson, who happens to be local for this family. Even if there aren't specific treatments available to us yet, there is most definitely sensible advice to avoid worsening and optimise the potential for natural recovery. Brava Cathy!

    I wrote to a physio (who treated my mum) about post exertional malaise and included this link.
    He replied

    That sounds like a good subject for our next inservice, so will disseminate to our team.

    Please feel free to send suggested changes to m.e.awareness.nz@gmail.com or to ask for a copy of the powerpoint. We are happy for others to use the powerpoint for their own use.

    I want to highlight this video that was originally posted on the NZ news thread by @Ravn. Dr Cathy Stephenson features. I didn't get around to listening to it at the time. It's a Goodfellow podcast, which is weird given the atrocious recent Goodfellow 'CFS/ME' MedCase document by Bruce Arroll.

    https://www.goodfellowunit.org/podcast/myalgic-encephalomyelitiscfs

    As Ravn says, it is well done, and there is a very moving section by Noah, a 16 year old boy. Articulate and sensible contributions from Rose Silvester also. I think it works well as a resource for doctors.
