    What would happen if we imposed a five year moratorium on the use of questionnaires in psycho medical research?

    I dream of a utopia of objective outcomes.

    Oh this is greatly needed research. It's only been done, what, hundreds of times? Better do it at least 1K times to be sure. Maybe there is something magical about the questions that require them to be asked just the right amount of times before they start giving the right answers.

    Maybe. Or maybe it's all just pointless BS.

    I think their USP is if they can treat/cure 'chronic fatigue' in patients they diagnose with CFS, then they can apply it to treat/cure any other 'chronic fatigue', or 'fatigue' in any chronically ill patients.

    No one checks the evidence.

    The study will ask your child to fill in questionnaires about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

    Coz patients just have not answered enough questionnaires about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

    Perception of fatigue should be in the PhD title. Not fatigue .
