RSM “CFS” Conference webcasts are now available on the RSM website 

Four webcasts are currently available to view at the link above. These are:

Introduction by RSM Dean Dr Scadding

Presentation by Professor Peter Denton White

Registration is required to view these webcasts but this does not take long to fill in and is processed immediately.

I will post the links for further webcasts as these become available on the RSM’s site.  I was told on Friday, by the RSM that it was anticipated that webcasts of all presentations would be available by the end of this week.


At the link below on the RSM site are links to extra online resources to accompany the conference: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which took place on Monday 28 April 2008.  These are PDFs of Speaker Abstracts and Biographies:
