• How exercise affects those with ME/CFS and fibromyalgia, including physical capacity, cognitive impairment and pain amplification, based on recent studies

• Strategies to help patients identify their activity tolerance and relapse threshold to better prevent and manage physical and mental symptoms

• How pain is experienced by patients across the illness spectrum and what interventions help

• How sleep disturbances affect those with ME/CFS and fibromyalgia and what interventions help

• How orthostatic intolerance syndromes, including POTS, affect patients and strategies to improve symptoms

• How to effectively perform a bedside test to determine orthostatic intolerance without using an expensive tilt table procedure
