  1. Characteristics of physicians who responded to both pre- and post-survey, categorized by involvement in the design process: those who were involved in the development, those of which ≥ 30% of their network was involved in the development, and those of which < 30% of their network was involved. Two physicians did not finish the social network question and were not included in the social network analyses
  2. Abbreviations: ED emergency department, IQR interquartile range, n number
  3. aNetwork measures were calculated based on the question “Who do you discuss problems with at work?”
