Table S1. The number of questionnaires returned at each stage of the study for each of the hospitals participating.
Table S2. Values of pre-management HUI-3 score and the pre-to-post change in HUI-3 score for the 4422 people who fully completed both pre- and post-management HUI-3 questionnaires for every combination of diagnostic category (rows) and management type (columns). The asterisked differences were statistically significant after allowing for a 36-test Bonferroni correction. ‘Δ’ refers to the mean change in HUI-3 from before to after.
Table S3. Values of the pre-to-post change in HUI-3 score for each subscale of the HUI-3. The data is for the 4422 people who fully completed both pre- and post-management HUI-3 questionnaires. The asterisked results were statistically significant after allowing for a 27-test Bonferroni correction.
Table S4. As Table S1 but for the values of the post-management GBI. The data is for the 4235 people who fully completed it.
Table S5. The numbers of patients whose change in HUI-3 score was larger than 0.05, <−0.05, or in-between, expressed as proportions. The management types are sorted in order of the positive vs. negative difference. The ‘random data’ row reports what would be expected given no change at all. It was calculated using a numerical simulation of normally-distributed data with a standard deviation of 0.3 (about that of the our data) and with a test-retest correlation of 0.75 (about that of the HUI-3; e.g., Jones et al 200524).
