The formation of EMECC

EMECC was formed from the urgent need to build a network of clinicians in Europe who can support each other, work together, and do it immediately.

Following work to set up a US Clinicians Council, by Dr Lucinda Bateman and Mary Dimmock, EMECC was formed to align with the US initiative and to aggregate the knowledge of experienced clinicians on clinical sub topics related to ME/CFS and provide patients, caregivers, clinicians and researchers the most up to date information about the disease.

The aims of EMECC are to bring together clinicians in the field of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis to review the current state of knowledge, to present and discuss the latest initiatives, and to foster collaboration.

EMECC will work with the American initiative and be supported by the European ME Alliance (EMEA - now representing fifteen countries) .

This group will meet and develop a network that can improve the knowledge of clinicians in Europe and act as a focal point for healthcare agencies and doctors wishing to know about the treatments and experiences for ME.
