    This looks annoying and worthless: http://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/7/5/e014133

    Wow, they've really taken the time to understand this straw-man of why patients are concerned about the promotion of CBT/GET:

    I'm mainly posting this because it says:

    I'm not sure that this organisation would want to fund worthless research:


    I wondered if it could be worth having an Australian contact them about the real reasons people are concerned about the way CBT/GET are promoted? Contact form for those running the trust: http://www.eqt.com.au/contactus

    Anyone got any views? Maybe having Cochrane promoting CBT/GET would be a big problem to overcome?

    With the looming collapse of PACE, Lloyd appears to be trying to prop up his taxpayer-funded empire of quackery with dubious research of his own.

    As for the Mason Foundation (who funded this rubbish), a lot of Australian patients (and perhaps even some local ME advocacy organisations) contacted them to complain but were brushed off.

    Keith is the second reviewer p3-8 and makes some excellent points. Not a surprise.
