New peer-reviewed commentary from me: "Do graded activity therapies cause harm in chronic fatigue syndrome?" http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/10.1177/1359105317697323 A lot of this focuses on the PACE trial as I was invited to submit a commentary following Keith Geraghty's PACE-gate piece.
From: "Worse Than the Disease" (Oct 27) http://undark.org/article/chronic-fatigue-graded-exercise-pace/ I collated survey data in my open access paper: "Reporting of Harms Associated with Graded Exercise Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" http://iacfsme.org/PDFS/Reporting-of-Harms-Associated-with-GET-and-CBT-in.aspx
Great to have journalists of the calibre and tenacity of Julie Rehmeyer & David Tuller doing a deep investigation of the issues and then reporting on them. http://www.virology.ws/2016/01/07/trial-by-error-continued-did-the-pace-trial-really-prove-that-graded-exercise-is-safe/ I'm quoted in it. I have published a paper and several letters on the issue of the safety or otherwise of graded exercise/activity programs. All but my 2 most recent letters can be read on my ResearchGate page
