In 2003 Health Canada, in cooperation with the National MEFM Action Network, convened an expert panel to develop and publish a Canadian clinical case definition for the diagnosis and treatment of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  The resulting full document was peer reviewed and published as:

 

Myalgic Encephalomelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Clinical Working Case Definition, Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols – A Consensus Document
Bruce M Carruthers, Anil Kumar Jain, Kenny L De Meirleir, Daniel L Peterson, Nancy G Klimas, A Martin Lerner, Alison C Bested, Pierre Flor-Henry, Pradip Joshi, AC Peter Powles, Jeffrey A Sharkey, Marjorie I van de Sande

 

Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 11(1):7-115, 2003

In 2005, a summary of the above full definition was published to assist physicians in applying the protocols to clinical practice. The summary is available as:

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Clinical Case Definition and Guidelines for Medical Practitioners.  An Overview of the Consensus Document.
