Complex Chronic Diseases (ME/CFS, FM, CDL,MCS)

There are thousands of people in BC who are affected by one or more chronic complex diseases such as Chronic Lyme Disease (CLD), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FM), and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) .

For this reason, it is important that referrals to CCDP are managed in a way that ensures that they are appropriate. This will avoid delays in the provision of medical assessments and management strategies to patients who qualify for admission to the CCDP.

Referral Criteria
  • Resident of British Columbia
  • 19 years of age or older
  • Symptoms or Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and/or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and/or Chronic Lyme Disease
