Thanks @Andy . I just have to highlight this from the translation as it made me happy on behalf of our Finish friends:
Objective: - to learn to recognize that chronic fatigue syndrome is a biological disease that can be cured but not cured for the time being - to find solutions to the CFS that cater to the medical community, the patient population and the health authorities - to discuss, on the basis of the panel, a national policy: a) identification of disease (primary health care; (b) concentrating medical expertise in units and specialties; d) granting the necessary social benefits (medical treatment, sick leave, pensions) (KELA)
Target group: All chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) patients encounter and treat doctors
I'm sure they mean treating doctors but i see it as doctors who hand out candy instead of diagnosing patients
They should be known as CBT physicians, (Chocolate, Butterscotch & Tiramisu)
sign me up, alvin
Indeed, i suspect it will raise moods of ME/CFS patients better then psychiatric CBT
Cake, now why didn't i think of that
Unfortunately self medicating with sugar does work.
No need to self medicate if there is a medical discipline predicated on providing tasty treats
Thanks for this post and all of your posts @Andy! I suggest the topics for the monthly ME/CFS Update of the German Association and therefore collect the most interesting ones every month and Science for ME is a goldmine. Just put the conference in Finland on the conference section of the topic list.
Since this thread already went off topic, I have to express my admiration for the Finish language: It's the funniest looking language I know. Lääkäripäivät, a word with 5 ä.
Separate names with a comma.
