    The title caught my attention: the biopsychosocial model is often what the CBT school call their model for ME/CFS.

    So I thought there is a possibility this paper might be interesting; at the same time, it might not be at all! (I can't tell without seeing the full text).

    It also has a few references involving CFS (that's how I came across it).

    It's good to see people thinking about how well these models actually work in the real world. Has anyone read the full paper?

    I don't recall the paper, but I recall reading about a situation where evidence based medicine was introduced into an aged community. Costs went up, but outcome was worse. Evidence based medicine and the biopsychosocial approach are associated. I am trying to figure out how deep that association is. Bye, Alex
