Good work, #MEAction Scotland. It is a well thought out and well reasoned document.
It is also heartily depressing with it reminder of what a mountain we have to climb all across the UK. At the moment everything to do with ME in the health service is horribly wrong, from medical education, to guidelines, to specialist, GP and community care to research funding.
Looks good, I’ve just read the summary so far but support all the aims and plans to lobby.
"Specific demands we will be making include the immediate removal of CBT/GET from the Scottish Good Practice Statement.
Whilst we support the use of appropriate psychological therapy designed to support patients coping with chronic disease, we condemn the use of CBT based on the psychosocial model, which asserts that ME is perpetuated by patients’ beliefs and “deconditioning”.
Furthermore, we will seek removal of PACE-style CBT and GET from all education and training materials while bringing pressure to bear on organisations to ensure that revised resources comply with the classification of ME by the World Health Organisation."
Great work guys!
