PACE data: QMUL disclosure under FOI
And whilst the international ME community will no doubt be celebrating (I admit I have a some what inane grin on my face just now) it is sobering to think of how far reaching the recommendations for Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) have permeated the knowledge base of our health services.
If (when) the reanalysis of this data shows that these therapies are without merit, there will still be a huge amount of work required to remove GET in particular from the "go to" solutions of doctors, physios and other health care professionals.
However for now, I celebrate.
The real work will no doubt follow.
(Sorry for such a short post, but I couldn't let something like this go by without making a quick comment. :) )
PS Nearly forgot to say Thank You Thank You Thank You Alem! xx
