Dropout From an Internet-Delivered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Intervention for Adults With Depression and Anxiety: Qualitative Study

This qualitative study demonstrated how patients who drop out of treatment can be distinguished in terms of their change in motivation: those who felt ready to leave treatment early and those who had negative reasons for dropping out. These two groups of participants have different treatment experiences, revealing how there is a difference between what we typically label as a dropout and what should actually be considered a dropout.

Durability of treatment effects following internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy for depression and anxiety delivered within a routine care setting

This study investigated post-treatment relapse and remission rates 3, 6 and 9 months after completion of an acute phase of a clinician-supported digital CBT, within a routine care setting. We found that 70.8% of those who met the criteria for recovery at the end of their treatment, still met the criteria for recovery at 9 months post-treatment. The results add to the scarce literature on the durability of the effects of digital CBT treatment in routine care settings, where patients are not typically followed up after completing a course of treatment.
