About 5% of the European population report symptoms for which the doctor cannot find a medical cause that sufficiently explains their symptoms, even after adequate medical examinations. These Medically Unexplained Symptoms (MUS) represent 20-40% of the caseload of doctors and are one of the most expensive diagnostic categories in Europe.
Good news, the abstract for Sigma's 31st International Nursing Research Congress, "Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms in Migrants: A Challenge for Nurses," has been selected for an oral presentation.
