Figure F-55 is titled “Change in BDI for CBT-mixed compared with control, by type of comparator.” The figure displays a forest plot reporting weighted mean difference of BDI stratified by CBT-mixed compared to waitlist and CBT-mixed compared to usual care. The plot depicts greater reductions in BDI scores for patients treated with CBT-mixed than waitlist (9 trials, weighted mean difference −10.40, 95% CI −14.91 to −5.89, I2= 83.4%) or usual care (1 trial, weighted mean difference −10.13, 95% CI −15.05 to −5.21). The overall analysis favored CBT-mixed (weighted mean difference −10.38, 95% CI −14.37 to −6.40, I2 =81.3%).
