  1. PRN-medication pro re nata, medication given as needed, Cl confidence interval. Multilevel linear regression modelling was used for analysis. aThe model was adjusted for the baseline DASA score on the intervention day and each intervention was assessed in separate regression models. bThe model was adjusted for all interventions and the baseline DASA score on the intervention day. The statistically significant differences are presented in bold
