    Frustrating/annoying article, unless you're a fan of the CBT/GET school of thought regarding ME/CFS.

    One can get an idea of what was taught in Tables 1 & 3, and the qualitative analysis section of the results.

    How did they verify the general knowledge of fatigue? With self rated questionnaire like in the PACE trial??

    Translation: Participants showed significantly higher levels of confidence in misdiagnosing and illtreating ME/CFS

    High scores were maintained at T3: they are evaluating everything like CBT trial!!!




    And by the way, what exactly is an occupational Health professional?

    Article is not up on PubMed yet. When it does go up, I intend to post the following as a PubMed Commons comment:

    I'd just bumped this thread in response to this article (or the abstract - not read the whole thing): http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...rom-pace-in-2011-still-not.23157/#post-490524

    It's on a pro-CBT occupational guidelines report.

    Still not been reviewed and updated with the PACE data.

    Some of the unsubstantiated and scientifically contradicted statements used to brainwash the participants:
    In addition to the ones above needing to be corrected, I think they should've added a few:
    GET and CBT lead to objective improvements in CFS patients. (FALSE)
    CFS patients often improve when active chronic infections are detected and treated. (TRUE)
    The 2-day CPET is a reliable indicator that reduced functioning in CFS patients is not due to deconditioning. (TRUE)

    And so on :p

    What are they measuring? Understanding or the use of evidence based medicine? No. They are measuring absorption of a checklist of things for which at least some of the answers the authors themselves got wrong, or have a confused and misleading interpretation of.

    "fatigue"?

    That tells us all we need to know about their workshops. More abuse and neglect for those with the neurological illness myalgic encephalomyelitis.
