    I've started this thread for discussions regarding the methodological issues and efficacy of the IAPT treatment model.

    In particular the move to treat 'CFS/ME' as a MUS that can be referred for IAPT CBT/GET treatment is now highly relevant to the ME/CFS NICE guideline.

    I would hope that the NICE definition of ME and management recommendations explicitly state that an ME/CFS diagnosis is incompatible with an MUS diagnosis and that inclusion in an IAPT type treatment programme is totally inappropriate.

    Sorry this is putting the conclusion before the evidence, but I hope others with better memories and lists of references can add in the reasons that this conclusion is [at least to any balanced observer should be] inescapable.
