Figure F-6 is titled “Loss of PTSD diagnosis for cognitive 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 therapy compared to waitlist, cognitive therapy compared to self-help booklet, and cognitive therapy compared to usual care. The plot depicts that 66% more patients treated with cognitive therapy achieved loss of PTSD diagnosis than waitlist (2 trials, risk difference 0.66, 95% CI 0.50 to 0.82, I2 = 0.0%), 57% more patients treated with cognitive therapy achieved loss of PTSD diagnosis than self-help booklet (1 trial, risk difference 0.57, 95% CI 0.36 to 0.79), and 15% more patients treated with cognitive therapy achieved loss of PTSD diagnosis than usual care (1 trial, risk difference 0.15, 95% CI −0.04 to 0.33). The overall analysis favored cognitive therapy (risk difference 0.51, 95% CI 0.24 to 0.78, I2 = 84.7%).
