Norway Health Directorate does not bless CBT & GET as 'the' ME/CFS therapies

  [ 17 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • July 13, 2011


On Jun 23, Norway’s Directorate of Health within the Ministry of Health and Care Services issued a “Summary of Knowledge” about the state of ME/CFS.

According to Norwegian blogger Cathrine Westerby, who has kindly translated the statement to English ("Interesting ME News From Norway!"), the letter includes recommendations for ME treatment, care, and research in Norway. And the spirit of the recommendations was “met with joy in the patient community” while Norway’s ME-Association “called it a milestone and a ‘partial victory for the ME cause.’”

Importantly, according to Cathrine’s translation, the Directorate:

• Says its knowledge review does not support “recommending graded exercise therapy and/or cognitive therapy for everybody with CFS/ME,”

• Does not support use of the NICE criteria (these are the NHS guidelines for CFS/ME treatment in England and Wales, which tend to cast ME/CFS in a psychiatric light and recommend GET & CBT as first-line treatments).

• Encourages increased funding to define causes and treatment,

• Recommends regional clinics for CFS/ME, evidence-based rehab services, learning/coping courses for patients & families, and much more.
