Can't wait for this one!
Comparison of treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome - the PACE trial
Mon 18 April 2011, 8.30am
repeated Tuesday 12.30am
Presented by Norman Swan
Researchers in the UK assessed the effectiveness and safety of four treatments for people suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome in what's called the PACE trial. PACE stands for 'Pacing, Activity, and Cognitive behaviour therapy: a randomised Evaluation'.
While this trial actually has some good news, the reactions from some people who claim to represent patients has been extraordinary.
The transcript of this program will be available by late afternoon on the Tuesday following Monday's broadcast. When Monday is a public holiday in NSW, the transcript will not appear until late Wednesday..
