    That quote is from 2007 [edit - sorry, misread this], and seems to be suggesting that published evidence can't be trusted, so the writer prefers to base their decisions on anecdote.

    Okay. I think the chapter itself looks more nuanced and that was mainly what I was referring to.
    By the way, I'm not sure that quote is from 2007. No results from the PACE trial had been published at that stage.

    Edited to add: Actually, I'm almost definite the more recent given she refers to a 2018 publication.

    Oops, you're right, it actually refers to 2018 in the text.
    The 2007 refers to the date of a book referred to at the bottom of the quoted section.
