Two more PACE Trial critiques have been published in the ‘Journal of Health Psychology’ series | 12 May 2017

May 12, 2017


Two more commentaries on the controversial PACE Trial have been published in full by the Journal of Health Psychology (JHP) – part of a series of 13 it has published so far.

The JHP agreed to not to impose its usual paywall on this topic after it accepted a suggestion from the ME Association that the public interest in the subject warranted the pieces going open access.

The two latest critiques are as follows:

PACE-GATE: An alternative view on a study with a poor trial protocol (Bart Stouten)

PACE investigators’ response is misleading regarding patient survey results (Karen D Kirke).

The ME Association has archived all the articles in this series – including those written by defenders of the PACE Trial.

They can be found below Dr Charles Shepherd's contribution at this link: www.meassociation.org.uk/2017/04/its-time-for-an-independent-review-of-the-pace-trial-methods-and-results-dr-charles-shepherd-journal-of-health-psychology-10-april-2017/

  1. Having trouble accessing Bart Stouten piece. Thank you MEA for making so much academic content accessible.

    1. Hello Biscuit

      We’ll be keeping an eye on this. Generally, there has been a short delay between the appearance of the abstracts in this series and then publication of the full texts.

      Tony at the MEA.
