Wake up MRC, the PACE trial promotes torture for ME
"our findings apply to patients with differently defined chronic fatigue
syndrome and myalgic encephalomyelitis whose main symptom is fatigue;" (p12)
A shame that fatigue is NOT the MAIN/a(n important) symptom of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis in the first place.
"Primary outcomes were subjective"
"CBT and GET encourage gradual increases in activity with the aim of ameliorating the illness." i.e. ignoring the illness.
"The findings from these studies concur with the UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines." Yes of course, they were WRITTEN by the GOBSART Academy aka the OLD BOY Network, supervised by the Wesselian brotherhood of denying illnesses.
"The comparatively greater reduction in postexertional malaise with both CBT and GET compared with the other two treatments is notable," for the simple reason that patients did NOT have postexertional malaise in the first place, but the Pinocchio doctors must succeed, to the detriment of the health of millions.
Wake up MRC, this is torture treatment at its best ...
Still haven't had enough of the silly PACE trial, then read the full report here ...
