Stripy Lightbulb CIC offers e-learning about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (M.E./C.F.S.) to professionals (healthcare, education, employers) who have a duty of care over M.E./C.F.S. patients.
Long Covid is similar to, if not the same as M.E./C.F.S., the support suggestions contained in this e-learning are appropriate for this illness too.

What can you expect from the course?
the CureME team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
Stripy Lightbulb’s training fills an important gap in the market, for ME/CFS training in business and the workplace. It is CPD-accredited, and can be valuable for employees and employers alike. All the research is up-to-date and references are provided throughout.
We enjoyed doing the course, and are grateful that a percentage of the surplus raised will go towards life-changing research at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, otherwise known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is a chronic complex, life-altering, debilitating neurological disease.
Patients are finding that a lack of adequate support and understanding are adding to the impact of the condition on their daily lives.More About M.E./C.F.S.

We are delighted to have successfully bid for funding from the National Lottery Community Fund - Wales to offer Training on M.E./C.F.S. in Wales in Spring/Summer 2023.

M.E./C.F.S. Patient Information Resource
The majority of new M.E./C.F.S. patients receive their diagnosis but are given either little or false information about their own illness.
Our informal, easy to understand, information resource is for people recently diagnosed as having M.E./C.F.S. or people who are still going through a diagnostic process and have been told by Doctors that M.E./C.F.S. is a possibility.
Our resource answers questions such as:
- What is M.E./C.F.S.?
- How are patients diagnosed?
- Why is there no diagnostic test for M.E./C.F.S.?
- Are there any effective treatments for M.E./C.F.S.?
- Does M.E./C.F.S. kill?
- How can patients look after their own health?
