    The effect of a person-centred and strength-based health intervention on recovery among people with chronic illness

    Am not able to read this study today, but browsed it, and when I found this, decided to post it here in case someone here can and will go through this more thoroughly.

    Beyond the medical, interventions to facilitate personal and life recovery in chronic illness are scarce and are for the most part designed for patients with mental health problems. For instance, the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) seeks to identify and utilize patient resources to facilitate recovery and the Illness Management and Recovery intervention (IMR) aims to help users to mitigate vulnerabilities and stressors by building social support, using medication effectively and developing a relapse prevention plan [3,11,12]. These interventions resemble the services commonly offered at Community Mental Health Centres (CMHC) in Norway [13]. Interventions to facilitate personal recovery in chronic somatic illness are often disease-specific; these include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) and Adaptive Pacing Therapy (APT), which focus on recovery from chronic fatigue syndrome [14].

    The study was enthusiastically presented this month in a journal for nurses as good news, for now patients will chronic illnesses will get a new treatment offer. Based on "body-knowledging".

    Seemed there was no control group... stopped reading.

    That article promoting it was a bit worrying.

    So they have gathered a group of people with different chronic illnesses, presented them with the concept of "body-knowleding" - whatever that is - and interpreted that some of them felt better after a while to the intervention. :confused:

    They do like their jargon:
    When in fact all it seems to be is a exercises and a bit of diary keeping and chat.

    I majored in psychology in university, and took a lot of sociology courses too - in part because essays didn't require a lot of research, and I could just make shit like this up.

    So what’s the difference between body knowledging and the U.K. CFS/ME clinics “Management programmes”. None - sounds exactly like what I did in 2016. PACE-lite.
