ME agenda: update on status of this site
This site was created in June 2007 for ME patients, carers and advocates and provided information, resources and commentary on the political issues affecting the lives of UK Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) patients.
In 2009, my primary advocacy focus shifted towards monitoring the development of DSM-5* (published May 2013) and ICD-11 (currently scheduled for presentation to the World Health Assembly in May 2018).
In 2010, I created Dx Revision Watch (originally DSM-5 and ICD-11 Watch) specifically for monitoring the development of these two classification systems.
ME agenda site will remain online for its post archives (Post Index to approximately 980 posts) and for occasional, important information relating specifically to ICD-11, DSM-5 and ICD-10-CM.
I have a number of other WordPress.com sites:
Twenty-six soldiers of lead status: extension site to ME agenda for occasional, selected material.
Read ME UK Events status: archived.
Read ME UK Events was created in March 2008 in response to the considerable concerns surrounding the April 2008 Royal Society of Medicine conference on “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” and to promote the various protests that were staged.
