    I remember thinking that Larun would count as having an ideological COI according to their criteria (along with just about every other author of the Cochrane IPD Exercise protocol). I don't really know how much this matters.

    Also if they are not a doctor, they can't switch to pharmacotherapy.
    Same applies with other non-medical healthcare workers.

    My memory of this paper was that it was questionable whether they found evidence of an effect, and maybe they were spinning a bit in favour of their own ideological views?

    Yes, although the results for statistical tests were all (as I recall) in the one direction, I think only one reached statistical significance.
