Abstract:

Given the prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD and the magnitude of its consequences, all affected veterans and active service members should have access to effective treatment. To match patients with the most appropriate treatment, it is important to know which treatment program characteristics and pretreatment patient characteristics are predictors of treatment retention and response. Knowing which aspects of programs are associated with better response could help design more effective programs, and finding pretreatment patient characteristics that can serve as red flags for dropout or prompts to monitor specific patients more closely would be a valuable tool for clinical practice.
