    Article published by Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation (Canadian business university) and way more interesting and documented than the title would suggest.
    It seems there really is a new narrative about ME emerging.

    Yes, that article was better than I expected.
    It does seem so. I'm aware that the University of Otago in New Zealand now holds a seminar for students taking a public health course where they get to hear from people with chronic diseases. It includes a person with ME; I heard it brought home to people how hard it is to have ME, not least because of the prevailing attitudes of health care professionals.

    This seminar was used as the basis of an essay assignment, to explore institutional barriers to access to health care.

    Nice, @Hutan. At another one of the major NZ Universities, the Clinical Psychology programme now includes seminars on "Medical illnesses masquerading as psychological disorders", and also seminars on the problem of bias in psychotherapy research trials.
