Data are presented as standardized response means (SRMs), and standardized effect sizes (SESs). All changes were significant (P-values determined by Paired-samples-t-tests: ๐‘ƒ < . 0 0 1 ). Baseline values range from 0 to 10, 10 representing least restrictions of HRQOL. t0 = start of participation, ๐‘ก 4 = 1 2 months after the start.
