  1. Abbreviations: C control, 95% CI 95% confidence interval, I intervention, SD standard deviation
  2. aFive questions were asked; however, data relating to impact on relationships are not presented here, as there was a systematic error by one of the two interviewers in how this question and answer scale was presented
  3. bAdjusted difference between groups calculated using a mixed effects repeated measures regression model including outcome with randomised group, time and an interaction between time and randomised group as fixed effects, adjusting for recruitment site and question score at screening, fitted as fixed effects with an unstructured covariance pattern; adjusted differences for where the 95% CI does not cross zero are highlighted in bold
  4. cScale: 1 (do not feel in control) – 5 (very much feel in control)
  5. dScale: 1 (not confident at all) – 5 (very confident)
  6. eScale: 1 (do not feel that I am sharing responsibility) – 5 (very much feel that I am sharing responsibility)
