From: Employing external facilitation to implement cognitive behavioral therapy in VA clinics: a pilot study

  Facilitated condition Median (Q1, Q3) Control condition Median (Q1, Q3) Fisher's Exact Test
Influence of empirical treatments on actual practice (1 = none, 5 = very much) 3.5 (3.0, 4.0) 4.0 (3.0, 5.0) p = 0.31
Self efficacy ratings    
   Understanding of the theory and concepts behind CBT (1 = not at all, 7 = extremely well) 6.0 (4.5, 6.5) 7.0 (6.0, 7.0) p = 0.10
   Perceived skills to conduct CBT (1 = none, 7 = extremely good) 6.0 (4.5, 7.0) 7.0 (6.0, 7.0) p = 0.99
   Perceived ability to conduct CBT as trained (1 = not at all, 7 = extremely good) 5.5 (4.0, 6.5) 6.0 (5.0, 7.0) p = 0.40
Barriers to implementation    
   Lack of time/heavy caseload 5.5 (3.5, 6.0) 5.0 (2.0, 7.0) p = 0.40
   Patients not interested in CBT 4.0 (1.5, 5.0) 2.5 (1.0, 5.0) p = 0.67
   Lack of administrative support 1.0 (1.0, 2.5) 2.0 (1.0, 4.0) p = 0.10
   Lack of space for CBT sessions 3.0 (1.0, 6.0) 2.0 (1.0, 3.0) p = 0.67
   Low personal motivation to conduct CBT 2.0 (1.0, 3.0) 1.0 (1.0, 2.0) p = 0.41
