    Hi,

    The UNSW and is looking for funding from the Mason Foundation and has propsed another CBT/GET Study.

    As a Global Community it is important that we all contribute.

    There is a proposed study/trial starting in 2016 which is deeply concerning: a randomised, controlled trial investigating the efficacy of online continuing education for health professionals, conducted at the University of New South Wales. However, the training program recommends GET and CBT as primary treatment methods for ME/CFS, and posits that clinicians often don’t follow through with such treatments because they are not well-educated in GET/CBT.

    On MEAction website you can find a letter to address Key Stake holders including the:

    Ethics commity at UNSW

    The Mason Foundation
