    I skimmed through this, and thought that it read a bit like they wanted to be able to slag off patient sites for promoting misinformation, but the participants were consistently positive about them. [edit: maybe I shouldn't post possibly misleading impressions from a late-night reading].

    Interesting that people accessed AfYME materials. Aren't they defunct now?

    I'm not surprised that they found patient-led resources better than 'official' ones. Official ones promote CBT and GET, while the others don't.

    Research can take a while to get published.

    The paper says "Data were collected between May 2015 and July 2016." and AYME was absorbed by AfME in April 2017.

    9 participants! HOW DO THEY GET THESE THINGS PUBLISHED?

    (hadn't realised CAPS lock was on, but I think I'll leave it)

    At first glance it seems pro ME sites. How will they square this with their advice about limiting total screen time,(including phones)?

    This is supposed to be limited to 3hrs a day (Bath) and 4 hrs (UCH). These times were heard at AfME workshop in Nov 2017.

    In addition there are parents on FB site who are being threatened with Social Workers, by the Clinic, because they cannot stop their teens using their phones too much.
    Do these people know nothing about youngsters in current society?

    Qualitative research, where you interview people and then transcribe interviews, generally involves small sample sizes. Many/most I’ve read seem in range of 10 to 20 or so.
