Medical guidelines[edit | edit source]

ME[edit | edit source]

There exists no medical guidance for ME in The Netherlands. In 2015, the Dutch Parliament assigned the Dutch Health Council to advise on ME. However, the council decided to advise on CFS once more instead.

CFS[edit | edit source]

The Dutch Health Council produced advice on CFS in 2005.[1] In February 2013 a basic medical guideline on CFS was published by CBO (in Dutch).[2] The new Dutch Health Council report is due in 2017.
