    Sorry about the confusion, it was at end of a day when I should have stopped earlier.
    I struggle with typing and speech recognition not so great when washed out.
    Had been on a copy and paste bender. Post was hitting near 3000 views and 1500 engagements over course of a day.

    Can you give some more context? I don't understand what this is about.

    From the Lochaber PVFS/CFS/M.E. website:

    http://www.me-lochaber.org.uk/leaflets/IntroLeaflet.pdf

    There is currently no cure, and while some people find they benefit from complementary therapies, others do not. Some therapies that have been tried are Pacing, Graded Exercise Therapy (GET), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or any combination of the three. Pacing is staying within one's energy limits and balancing bouts of activity and rest to minimise symptoms. GET is a process of slowly and carefully increasing the amount of exercise done in one go. GET is controversial, with many patient groups reporting that it can cause bad relapses and deterioration. A large scientific trial (White et al., 2010)1 that found GET and CBT to be safe and moderately effective has been accused of significant bias (http://www.me-lochaber.org.uk/leaflets/GETInfoForHealthProfessionalsHighlandRegion.pdf). Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help people cope with having a chronic illness and is helpful if people are suffering from depression as well as ME/CFS – though for some sufferers, cognitive dysfunction may be so great that they cannot attempt CBT. For more information on approaches that can help ME, see Action for ME’s website or the ME Association's website.

    It's the METRIC on line CPD course.
    Been through it and have screen shot most of it.
    To be scrupulously fair, it was not as bad as I thought it might be.......
    I think we have to be measured and careful in our comments and any specific criticisms about it.......

    The content is different to the one that Tom archived and sent the link to recently.

    I’m confused are there two different versions of the same product or two different products?
