CFSAC Spring 2011 Meeting Agenda (May 10-11)

Post #72 Shortlink: http://wp.me/pKrrB-126

The Agenda for the next meeting of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) has been issued and can be read on the CSFSAC website here and below.

Transcripts of some Public and Written Testimonies for the May meeting can be read on this page of the CFSAC website.

“The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) provides advice and recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services via the Assistant Secretary for Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on issues related to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). These include:

  • factors affecting access and care for persons with CFS;
  • the science and definition of CFS; and
  • broader public health, clinical, research and educational issues related to CFS.

“Administrative and management support for CFSAC activities is provided by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH). However, staffing will continue to be provided primarily from the Office on Women’s Health, which is part of OASH.

“Dr. Wanda K. Jones, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health in OASH, will continue in her role as the Designated Federal Officer for CFSAC.”

I am pleased to see that discussion of concerns around the proposed coding of CFS for the forthcoming US specific “Clinical Modification” of ICD-10, which is known as “ICD-10-CM”, has been tabled for further discussion, at 1.15pm on Day One of  the meeting.
