    This seems especially wasteful and foolish. Ah, classic Chalder.

    Can we apply for a study of her research methodology, acronym DEFUND?

    From my brief skim it would appear that people who have diabetes and have had leg ulcers are to be actively encouraged to monitor their physical symptoms and to seek help.

    Sadly I read somewhere that the incidence of amputations (leg or part leg) had significantly increased recently, due to peopel not able to get adequate nursing care for them during lockdown). I am not sure any online CBT would have helped with that.

    I don't understand why the patients GPs couldn't just give them an information sheet with that on.......why does it need a course of CBT(?)

    Agree - I think it would be practice nurse role for regular reviews. And making those appointments 20 minutes instead of 10 so the nurse could have a chat and bring in the messages and build up a relationship with the patients would be more effective.

    This type of research seems more like funding to enable a successful pitch for work!

    And to suck up more research funding and provide something for her post grad students to do PhD's on. Shudder! More bad science.

    I would argue for REFUND. Refund it all, give back all the money they wasted. Take it straight from the departments' future funds, they wasted those resources willingly and blatantly, do not deserve stewardship over those any longer. This was blatant misuse of public resources for entirely ideological purposes.

    How will CBT practitioners find employment otherwise? They would, obviously, but now there's more of it. Lifetime employment, to boot, since these people will be doing the exact same things 30 years from now that they were doing 30 years ago. Lifetime employment with no accountability or even anyone demanding any results is very rare these days. They don't even have to do anything on a daily basis, no one expects any of this to deliver anything. It's quite a niche they carved out for themselves.
