Figure F-11 is titled “Change in Sheehan’s Disability Score for cognitive therapy compared with control, by type of comparator, weighted mean difference.” The figure displays a forest plot reporting the weighted mean difference in SDS scores stratified by cognitive therapy compared to waitlist, cognitive therapy compared to self-help booklet, and cognitive therapy compared to usual care. The plot depicts greater reductions in Sheehan’s Disability scores for patients treated with cognitive therapy than waitlist (2 trials, weighted mean difference −3.13, 95% CI −5.09 to −1.18, I2 = 74.9%), self-help booklet (1 trial, weighted mean difference −1.80, 95% CI −3.12 to −0.48), or usual care (1 trial, weighted mean difference −1.80, 95% CI −3.12 to −0.48). The overall analysis favored cognitive therapy (weighted mean difference −2.66, 95% CI −4.00 to −1.33, I2 = 65.9%).
