Canadian Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Fibromyalgia

What is it?

The Canadian Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Fibromyalgia is a resource for all healthcare professionals who treat patients with fibromyalgia. Created by a committee of healthcare professionals, experts, researchers, and patient representatives, the guidelines present a multidisciplinary view on the management of this condition.

Our thoughts:

Fibromyalgia can be a very difficult condition to manage, and many physiotherapists may not have enough knowledge to feel confident treating patients who are living with it.

This resource provides excellent, thorough information that can help clinicians become more familiar with the clinical presentation, diagnosis, multidisciplinary management, and relevant outcome measures for fibromyalgia, thus increasing their confidence in the clinical setting.
