NOTE: Because 95% CI in the previous column is calculated on unadjusted data, the P value, which is adjusted for baseline score, will not necessarily be consistent with the CI.

aΔ (delta) from baseline in intervention group minus Δ from baseline in usual care group. A negative score indicates a greater decrease in the intervention group, and a positive score a greater increase.
