    Note: this is from 2016. It's new to me but may be familiar to others.

    There is something rotten in the state of psychiatry. My sympathy to the patients involved..

    Here's the conclusion (my bolding):

    Professor Keith Laws might be interested to hear about the NICE review of treatments for ME/CFS. He could be a compelling ally.

    Second, study quality needs to be actively incorporated into the presentation of conclusions.

    Third, and perhaps most importantly, the approach of NICE needs to be more critical. Seeming to set the bar too low, or lower for psychological therapies, can only raise doubts about rigour and impartiality.



    Sounds familiar. Perhaps everyone going to the NICE stakeholder meeting should have this other T-shirt.

    That should have been on their T-shirt.
