CATO-senteret, a rehabilitation center for children and adolescents with a biopsychosocial approach to ME, invites health personell to a conference titled "When the body refuse". I noticed both prof. Wyller and Lillebeth Larun (from the Cochrane review group on ME) among the speakers. From introduction to the conference - google translation: Medical Unexplained Disorders (MUPS), Bodily Distress Syndrome (BDS) and Functional Neurobiological Symptomatic Disorders are some of the common names used as collective terms for a variety of diseases or syndromes. Despite significant research activity, there have been no clear objective diagnostic criteria or good drug strategies. Do you recognize ICPC diagnostic codes like P75, L84, L18, N95, P02, P82, L83, L29, A04, P78 and P29? Or ICD10 diagnostic codes such as F48.0, Z73.0, F45.4, F45.8, G93.3, R51, G44.2, R52.2, R52.9, M54.2, M54.5, M54.9, M79.1, M79.7? Although some individuals and organizations have strong opinions about both causal relationships and therapies, the classical disease model may not seem to affect such disorders. However, when this is still used, it leads to repeated rounds in the specialist health service looking for a cause that "must exist". In the despair of absence of such causes, it opens for use of soothing treatment and alternative therapies. BUT - - What do we really know today about causal relationships and treatment that work? against prolonged pain in the muscles and skeletal system without known cause (including fibromyalgia, neck, headache and back pain) against different fatigue conditions and fatigue (including burnout and CFS / ME) - What do we actually mean by the biopsychosocial explanation model and what does it in practice mean to use such a model? And should we not stop using the term psychosomatic disorders? - Perhaps many patients have to accept that life does not meet the WHO criteria for good health - for most of us. But that it is about accepting that life is such - and to help find good coping strategies? - What do we know about how important training / activity and participation are in these strategies? Although we do not yet fully understand these states, how can we jointly utilize the knowledge available in the best possible way? Therefore - are you? General practitioner who struggles with patients with long-term pain and / or fatigue conditions, sleep disorders and addiction Medical practitioner wondering how long to investigate these patients, how many times they will be assessed and how many interventions they will undergo - because you still believe that there must be a structural explanation of the radiant pain, on the paralysis, on the invalidating headache. .. Physiotherapist wondering why none of your available therapies gives lasting effect Psychologist or psychiatric nurse wondering what to do to help the same patients - and how to deal with all the medications they are on .. School nurse wondering how to help the children return to school stability and out of social isolation NAV employee wondering why no one in health care can help these users to regain their work ability. Employed in the Directorate of Health, which will make good guidelines for the treatment of major diseases for the improvement of public health .. ... then you should sign up for this conference! During this conference we will focus on recent theoretical explanatory models and status in ongoing research. And we will share practical experiences from the work of "the repetitions (stress, pain and sleep). We realize that the solution is not simple (a "quickfix"), but that development still gives hope to help many more to a better life and better functioning. Hope that there are actually methods and strategies that help, but that require us to think new in relation to interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral cooperation. We hope to provide concrete advice on effective tools that can help you in your daily life - whether you are a clinician, a politician, a NAV employee or an employee in a directorate or department!
