    MUS really is becoming the bucket everything gets chucked into if it possibly can be.

    Have just forwarded this to person from Bolton who was at the NICE scoping mtg. Hopefully someone from there can follow it up in some way.

    A post on my Facebook page on this

    Carly Maryhew
    The thesis of the Dr running the session is Louise Barber. You can see her thesis on CFS at http://e.bangor.ac.uk/4402/2/440964.pdf (I have downloaded in case access becomes locked). Very typical BPS approach, where symptoms are maintained due to psychological factors and CBT seeks to fix them.

    Carly Maryhew One disgusting snippet from her thesis: "There is evidence that patients with more pessimistic perceptions of themselves, their symptoms and stressor appraisals may perpetrate or exacerbate their psychosocial and physical dysfunction (Afari & Buchwald, 2003). " (page 105)

    hard evidence -if we needed it- that "distressing" must be removed from the NICE scoping document description of ME - it is BPS terminology

    ETA why do they insist on renaming things in this case their new name for chronic health conditions translates to

    chronic and upsetting chronic health conditions - where's that tripe picture

    'Distressing' is the mother of all understatements!!!

    I personally always try to use the term ME with all medical staff. Unfortunately' Chronic Fatigue syndrome' can give the impression that we are just very fatigued,or burnt out, which is no where near describing the brutal facts of this illness.

    I realise that I am incredibly lucky that my area is not yet under the MUS umbrella...but it's probably only a matter of time.

    Latest article (including ref to CPD)
    ‘Priorities for the President’
    "CPD points are a mandatory General Medical Council (GMC) requirement for every doctor. CPD points are counted on annual basis. Without sufficient CPD points a doctor’s license to practice risks being revoked.

    In the UK, there is no current way for a medical practitioner to objectively appraise if this essential continuing education on therapeutic interventions [education received in good faith] may be scientific, realistic, or safe."
