Of 4 reference estimates evaluated in this study, only the Modified Diet of Renal Diseases resulted in AKI diagnoses that were both prognostic and incremental.

CONCLUSION: Results from this pilot trial suggest that VA-CRAFT holds initial promise in reducing caregiver burden and as such it could be a useful resource for family members of veterans with PTSD. However, VA-CRAFT does not enhance veteran treatment initiation. It may benefit from enhancements to increase effectiveness and caregiver engagement.

Due to the small number of included studies and the small sample size, clinical trials with large sample sizes and a low risk of bias are recommended to provide evidence for the implementation of interventions affecting psychological distress in the mothers of preterm infants in clinical settings.
