The STOP-PTSD trial 1 strengthens existing evidence that guided, internet-based, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with a trauma focus is an effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 2 , 3 , 4 The study found that internet-based cognitive therapy for PTSD (iCT-PTSD) was superior to a similarly delivered non-trauma focused intervention, internet-based stress management therapy for PTSD (iStress-PTSD). 1 This finding complements the RAPID study's finding that Spring, another guided, internet-based CBT with a trauma focus that we developed, was non-inferior to face-to-face CBT with a trauma focus for the treatment of PTSD. 4 The results of STOP-PTSD and RAPID have resulted in the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Early Value Assessment Guidance recommending iCT-PTSD and Spring as digitally enabled treatments for PTSD. These treatments join seven other digitally enabled interventions recommended by NICE for the treatment of common mental conditions in May, 2023. 5 , 6
