  1. Univariate analysis of variance (general linear model) with change in HoNOSCA total scorea as the dependent variable.
  2. a Change in HoNOSCA total score > 0 represents improvement.
  3. b Model: R2 = 0.34 and Adj R2 = 0.25.
  4. c We present B values (unstandardized) for significant variables only.
  5. d For this variable: "No" was coded 0, "Yes" was coded 1.
  6. * P < 0.05; ** P < 0.01.
