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.

    I seem to remember that PACE used intention-to-treat analysis (that is, counting all withdrawals as failures). BUt I can't remember the details.

    Yes, what she says wouldn't apply to the PACE Trial's analysis.

    That's what I'd vaguely remembered, but I just read someone else (somewhere?) saying that they hadn't done this in the normal way. (I've not checked details, but thought I'd rumour monger as you just happened to mention this point).

    re assessment as a part of routine care: This has always seemed like something which could be skewed by me, unless it was done independently of those providing the service.
