    Forgive me for being cynical but I have to wonder whether this randomised controlled trial would have been published as a full paper rather than just as a poster and an abstract, if they had got results that suggested a combined pool-based exercise and education programme helped

    (it was listed at: http://www.controlled-trials.com/ISRCTN21694164 - the third publication might look like a full paper but it's actually "Rehabilitation and Therapy Research Society Second Annual Conference The Challenges of Clinical Research: 25-26 May 2006 at University College Dublin" pp. 205-228(24) i.e. a review on the whole conference. It has been relatively buried.)
