Figure F-44 is titled “Change in CAPS for CBT-mixed compared with control, by comparator: Sensitivity analysis including studies with high risk of bias.” This figure displays a forest plot reporting the weighted mean difference in CAPS scores stratified by CBT-mixed compared to usual care and CBT-mixed compared to waitlist. The plot depicts greater reductions in CAPS scores for patients treated with CBT-mixed than usual care (2 trials, weighted mean difference −8.71, 95% CI −17.84 to 0.42, I2 =0.0%) or waitlist (8 trials, weighted mean difference −32.66, 95% CI −42.95 to −22.37, I2 =83.1%). The overall analysis favored CBT-mixed (weighted mean difference −27.98, 95% CI −38.10 to −17.86, I2 =85.6%).

Note: Difede et al., 2007, and Beck et al, 2009 were rated as having a high risk of bias.

Timing of outcome assessment: 12 weeks (Difede, 2007), 7 weeks (Johnson, 2011), 14 weeks (Beck, 2009), 8 to 12 weeks (Blanchard, 2003), 12 weeks (Cloitre, 2002), 4 weeks (Fecteau, 1999), 12 weeks (Hinton, 2005), 4 to 5.5 weeks (Kubany, 2004), 4.5 months (Kubany, 2003), 14 weeks (McDonagh, 2005).
