During the last year, the study team continued follow-up data collection, boasting high retention rates. Three-month follow-up was completed in January 2014, with an overall completion rate of 93 across both arms. Six-month follow-up was completed in March 2014, with an overall completion rate of 90 across both arms. Twelve-month follow-up is projected to be completed by October 2014 the current overall completion rate is 86 across both arms. Investigators are prepared to conduct full analyses of the data as soon as the final two participants have completed the 12-month follow-up assessments. In the last year, all partnering institutions established data safeguarding plans and data transfer agreements to ensure datasets are properly transferred between institutions for data analysis. Investigators submitted a design manuscript to the journal Contemporary Clinical Trials and are preparing revisions to that manuscript. Investigators continued work on multiple manuscripts and presentations, including a main outcomes manuscript, and presentations on trial design at the 29th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies ISTSS in November 2013 in Philadelphia, PA and at the Military Health System Research Symposium MHSRS in August 2014 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
