OutcomeStudyQ1. Were pts. randomly assigned to study groups?Q2. Was the process of assigning patients to groups made independently from physician/mental health care provider and patient preference?Q3 For nonrandomized trials, did the study employ any other methods to enhance group comparability?Q4. Was comparison of interest prospectively planned?Q5. Were all study groups concurrently treated?Q6 Were those who assessed the patients’ outcomes blinded to the group to which the patients were assigned?Q7 Was the outcome measure of interest objective and was it objectively measured?Q8 Was the treatment applied consistently across study subjects and over time?Q9. Was there a ≤5 difference between groups in ancillary treatment(s)?Q10 Was there ≤15% difference in the length of followup for the two groups?Q11 Did ≥85% of enrolled patients provide data at the time point of interest?Q12 Was there a ≤15% difference between groups in the percentage of patients who provided data at the time point of interest?Q13 Was funding free of financial interest?Overall Risk of Bias Category
