This workshop will cover foundational pathophysiology and functional impact of ME/CFS. Due to the projected large numbers of Long COVID patients, the links between ME/CFS and Long COVID will also be covered.

What to expect

We will use a case studies to follow patients from home, presentation to ED, on a ward, post-surgery and back into the community.

This is an interactive workshop, with each “staging” presented with questions for participants to answer about how they would approach care, keeping in mind the pathophysiology already covered.

A registered nurse for the last 16 years, Kate has a background in paediatric cardiac and renal transplant, infection control and immunisation. Kate lives with ME/CFS, integrating her personal experience and extensive knowledge of the issues people face in accessing care to educate healthcare practitioners.
