Post-Viral Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS): What Every Clinician Needs to Know
This is a FREE CME webinar on the diagnosis and treatment of post-viral syndromes developing in the wake of COVID-19, including Long COVID and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). With experts at Harvard Medical School and elsewhere conservatively estimating that 10% of COVID-19 patients will go on to develop post-viral ME/CFS, Arizona medical providers and students must learn immediately to recognize and treat the thousands of Arizonans expected to develop this disabling disease in 2021.
Click here to find the CME. Please note that this CME is sponsored by Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, the NY State Department of Health Clinical Education Initiative (CEI) and The Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Action Network of New York. The CME is accredited for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit through the University of Rochester School of Medicine.
To take the CME, participants must first sign up for a free MyCEI account. Once the account is created, click the button “Watch this Learning Module.” On the new screen that opens, click the button at the bottom of the screen that says “Enroll.” This will start the CME video.
