    How to Get All Trials Reported: Audit, Better Data, and Individual Accountability

    A few extracts:
    This contrasts with the way patients and patient groups have been treated and portrayed for looking for data from the £5 million PACE Trial e.g. the primary outcomes and recovery rates using the versions in the published protocol, not the changed versions the investigators published instead.

    I think this applies to PACE. We already write open letters. We already avoid treatment. What else can we do?

    The focus in the article is on pharmacological interventions, but there is not much difference with psychological interventions, an RCT is an RCT. The debate needs to be expanded to include all of psychiatry.
