Seeing Opportunity in Adversity: Who is WHO and why does it matter to you?

Marly Silverman, founder of PANDORA and Celeste Cooper, RN, author & FM Expert at Sharecare, teamed up for the article for May’s FM, CFS/ME and other NEI awareness, which gets to the grass roots of our future. You won’t want to miss and share this one. Use your voice by giving support of our concerns regarding changes that are to occur in the International Classifications of Diseases (ICD) and our grave concerns regarding the implementation of ICD-10CM, which is the United States revision of ICD-10.

Seeing Opportunity in Adversity: Who is WHO and why does it matter to you?

The article answers questions and raises concerns, such as:

* Why is understanding classification of disease important to us, the patient?
* Could our diagnosis and treatment be affected?
* What are ICD codes?
* What is the DMS-5 and why does it matter to us?
* What is the CSSD (Complex Somatic Symptom Disorder Criteria)?
* Update on CSSD to SSD (Simple Somatic Symptom Disorder) is there really much of a difference?
* Wrapping it up: Why should we be concerned?
* Can we take three steps forward and ten steps back?
 * What can we do?
* Who are the advocates who have been vocal on the issue?
