  1. NORPEQ items: 1 = did doctors talk so that you could understand them? 2 = did you trust the doctors’ professional skills? 3 = did you trust the personells’ professional skills? 4 = did you experience that the personell cared for you? 5 = were the doctors and personell interested in your situation? 6 = did you receive information about tests and examinations? PPE-15 items as described in Appendix. Correlations as measured by the Spearman’s rho. **-significant at a 0.01 level (2-tailed). *-significant at a 0.05 level (2-tailed). The highest correlations are in bold face
  2. aA positive correlation coefficient indicates a positive relationship between the two variables (the larger value PPE, the larger value NORPEQ) while a negative correlation coefficients expresses a negative relationship (the larger value PPE, the smaller value NORPEQ)
