    I think that's a really good video. I hope lots of doctors watch it.

    Well made video, though a couple references to the movie make it ideal to watch Unrest first
    My suggestion would have been to edit those out and reword it a bit so watching it would be unnecessary, though it already mostly is unnecessary.

    So glad you like the video! Just to clarify, this is the video that doctors are meant to view directly after they watch Unrest in order to receive credit, which is why it is so closely tied to the film. Although we had the option to accredit the film alone, we really wanted to give physicians a way to take what is an experiential learning experience (the film) and structure that learning in practical ways to help them diagnose/recognize the disease and help patients manage symptoms.

    Our goal is to accredit the film in other countries (right now, we are talking with potential partners in Canada, Australia and in the UK). Depending on the requirements of medical accreditation in these countries, we’d likely reshoot a version of this video with an expert doctor in each location, modifying the script for local needs.

    My hope in the long-run is to work with various partners to create longer-form (more-in-depth, technical) educational training modules but hopefully Unrest + the video can pique interest and be a “gateway drug” for medical providers to start taking an interest in ME.

    We also want to create less technical, accessible educational videos for the public and newly diagnosed patients. Everything always takes longer than we would hope. But we’ll get there, step-by-step!

    Mobilize your Medical Providers to Watch Unrest for Credit

    We are so thrilled to announce that US healthcare providers – including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists and social workers – can now watch Unrest and receive continuing education credits through the American Medical Women’s Association and Indiana University School of Medicine, in partnership with #MEAction.

    Healthcare providers can attend a live, continuing education event screening of Unrest – at a theater, hospital, university, clinic or community center – or register to watch Unrest online; watch a 10-minute video on the diagnosis & management of ME by Dr. David Kaufman; take a short test; and receive 2.0 American Medical Association PRA Category 1 Credits™."

    That makes a lot of sense now, he mentioned names that people would not know unless they watched the movie and i wondered why some things had implied context from Unrest so i get it now.

    That is awesome, my GP recently retired and i got a new graduate as a replacement who knew nothing about ME, i printed a review written a few years back and gave it to her to read but videos designed for doctors would be great. Not too long ago i had listened to the podcasts from Figure 1 which were very interesting, i wonder if they would ever consider doing an ME clip. I might try to summon the energy to ask them.

    This would be great to have as references so i really look forward to seeing them :)

    I missed this thread when it was posted but this is very good news. If it were also accredited in Canada that would be great :)

    I hope lots of doctors watch. When I saw the training video I was blown away by how good it is.

    Thanks for all the work that goes into this project!
