Thought it might be useful to have a thread on news from Scandinavia. Hopefully it can become an archive and useful as a reference in future. Starting with the kickoff of one of the four research projects which recently got funded in cooperation with ME-patients by the Research Council of Norway; Tjenesten og MEg (The health service and I). SINTEF and Fafo (both independent research organisations) collaborate on a research project on ME-patients and their meeting with the health service. SINTEF has previously written three very thorough reports on the lack of care for ME-patients. They are planning on making qualitative interviews with ME-patients and a big survey. They have a Facebookpage and a website for those who want to follow them. Last month they invited to an open meeting to introduce their project and to discuss and receive inputs from patients, carers and others. The meeting was streamed and later uploaded on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fz_Ge9LlXf8 It was a very successful meeting, with an open and respectful dialogue and with incredibly powerful and insightful input from the audience. I followed the meeting on streaming, and my impression was that the researchers present were thorough, humble, genuinely interested and listened to what was said. Am excited about the project and looking forward to read it when finished. Hopefully in 2019.
