International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Pragmatic Rehabilitation was assessed in the UK£1.3m FINE Trial. It is similar to CBT and GET and a previous trial of it (Powell et al., 2001) has been used in reviews of GET and CBT for CFS (as evidence of their efficacy).

    I have just come across the manual:

    http://www.fine-trial.net/downloads/Patient PR Manual ver9 Apr05.pdf

    I don't have time/energy to review it at the moment. However, Orla in the thread, "Psychiatric Theory in practice: Liverpool CF/CFS Clinic Patient handout" http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...liverpool-cf-cfs-clinic-patient-handout.3066/ , wrote a detailed critique of that manual which I believe is similar.

    Note: I have also just set up a thread: "FINE Trial: Pragmatic Rehabilitation Presentation (initial presentation to patients) http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...ation-initial-presentation-to-patients.21416/


    I thought it would be easier to have separate threads given there is a good chance people will start discussing the contents as it might get confusing with the page numbers, etc.
