Translating Science into Clinical Care
March 20-23, 2014 • San Francisco, California, USA
The IACFS/ME announces our 11th Biennial International Research and Clinical Conference to be held in San Francisco, California, USA, March 20-23, 2014. The conference will be held at the Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel.
Integrative conference themes will focus on fatigue, post-exertional malaise, pain, sleep, pediatrics, cognition, and brain function in CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia. Research and clinical topics will also encompass fatigue in diseases including cancer, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis, pain conditions, mood disorders, and circulatory diseases. In addition, studies on fatigue in sleep, aging, exercise and sport, and occupations will be welcomed.
Different sessions will address advances in assessment and treatment (from biological to behavioral) as well as new developments in virology, immunology, and neuroendocrinology. We also anticipate new topics such as mentoring/career development, clinical fatigue education in medical schools and public health policy with respect to fatigue.
Attendees to IACFS/ME conferences are primarily biomedical and behavioral professionals, including clinicians, researchers, and educators. It is anticipated that this event will be accredited for continuing medical education for Category 1 CME (physicians), CNE for nurses, and CPE for pharmacists. There will also be a separate one day conference on March 20th specifically for patients (fees apply). Patients may also attend the main conference on March 21-23rd for an additional fee. There will be many exciting exhibits and poster presentations of interest to health professionals, researchers and patients.
