Figure F-2 is titled “Loss of PTSD diagnosis for cognitive processing therapy compared with control, by type of comparator.” The figure displays a forest plot reporting the risk difference in loss of PTSD diagnosis stratified by cognitive processing therapy compared to waitlist and cognitive processing therapy compared to usual care. The plot depicts that 52% more patients treated with cognitive processing therapy achieved loss of PTSD diagnosis than waitlist (3 trials, risk difference 0.52, 95% CI 0.37 to 0.67, I2 = 61.4%) and 20% more patients treated with cognitive processing therapy achieved loss of PTSD diagnosis than usual care (1 trial, risk difference 0.20, 95% CI −0.00 to 0.39). The overall analysis favored cognitive processing therapy (risk difference 0.44, 95% CI 0.26 to 0.62, I2 = 77.9%).
