- Recommendation ID
- In well-defined generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), what is the clinical and cost effectiveness of two cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) based low-intensity interventions (CCBT and guided bibliotherapy) compared with a waiting-list control?
- Any explanatory notes
- Why this is important:- Psychological treatments are a recommended therapeutic option for people with generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). CCBT is a promising low-intensity intervention for GAD that does not yet have a substantial evidence base. It is therefore important to establish whether CCBT is an effective and cost-effective treatment that should be provided for GAD, and how it compares with other low-intensity interventions such as guided bibliotherapy. The results of this trial will have important implications for the provision, accessibility and acceptability of psychological treatment in the NHS.
