  1. Direction of effect estimates for dichotomous outcomes. Profession, Negative effect estimates indicate that non-physiotherapists learned less than other professionals. Qualification, Negative effect estimates indicate that professionals with a graduate degree learnt less than those with a bachelor degree. Baseline compliance, Positive effect estimates indicate that participants that were compliant with guidelines learned more than those that were not compliant at baseline.
