There is a lot about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) that we still don't know, but those with CFS have symptoms that affect their everyday lives.
Over the past several years, research has shined new light on this complex condition. The Institute of Medicine is encouraging healthcare providers to look at chronic fatigue syndrome in new ways. As research professionals, we should consider the challenges potential patients may find in everyday activities, as well as how challenging it might be for them to find help.
May 12th is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Awareness Day and is observed so that stakeholders can improve the knowledge of the public, policymakers, and healthcare professionals about the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of CFS, as well as the need for a better understanding of this complex illness to improve the ways we present help to them.
How a Patient Travel Program can help:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients experience profound fatigue that is not relieved by rest. Getting to and from a study visit is not easy, so by providing transportation to the patient a study site and sponsor can increase enrollment and retention.
