    Hmm, she'll extrapolate to ME/CFS and then accuse people with mood disorders of stalking her and issuing threats? ;)

    Or correlating the incidence of "chronic fatigue" with depression in teens. High incidence of both and prevalence of correlation.
    Betting a jar of (invisible) magic beans.

    She's keeping her options open - hasn't even confirmed the title yet with only 11 days to go. Probably thinks her name alone will be a big enough draw.

    Because psychiatrists only feel with their mind and are equally comfortable measuring with poetry as well as pathology: I'm sure it'll be an edgy beat poem about mood disorders and how it correlates to how under attack she is. :rofl:

    Perhaps she will view this as an opportunity to correct certain unfortunate impressions which have arisen after her last two presentations.

    One would expect that someone who might appear in court as an expert witness would wish to take the first opportunity of setting the record straight.

    She is not actually a psychiatrist her first papers were on things like leukemia, IL-10 in RA/Lupus.

    Which I think means she should know better and should understand her methodology is poor.

    But I like the idea of someone giving a presentation as an edgy beat poem. Or perhaps as a more modern version should she do the talk as a rap.

    I would think for mood disorders, singing the blues might be more appropriate.........

    Her talk now has a title:
    Professor Esther Crawley (University of Bristol) - What is new in paediatric Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME) research

    No doubt it'll be about her groundbreaking SMILE trial(?)

    people on twitter/FB please watch for any related posts 12:00 to 1:00pm tomorrow.

    eta:
    interesting that's she's using the encephalopathy rather than encephalomyelitis (maybe she finds it easier to say/remember?), and that she splits CFS from ME(?)

    From me-pedia http://me-pedia.org/wiki/Esther_Crawley:

    "SMILE was a pilot trial on children with ME/CFS and involved comparing the effects of standard medical treatment (SMC) against that of the Lightning Process & SMC.[4] The initial budget was £164,000 funded by the Linbury Trust and the Ashden Trust.[5]

    Children aged 12 to 18 were drawn from the Bristol & Bath areas, with those too unwell to attend hospital appointments excluded. The charity Association of Young People with ME (AYME) was a participant in the trial[6] and gave evidence in support during the trial ethics procedure.

    A Freedom of Information request asking for the cost of the trial and payments to Phil Parker were turned down as they university states the "information is held by the University but is exempt from disclosure under section 22(1) of the Freedom of Information Act as it is information intended for future publication"

    Any information on this FOI?

    Could a tweeter maybe ask Phil Hammond why, if they believe ME is not psychological, is his boss EC talking at a Mood disorders seminar?
