  2. Note: Item response probability indicates the proportion of participants in each latent class answered “yes” to each TC strategy. While there is no distinct threshold, we highlighted >.75 for the purposes of differential grouping
  3. a These 5 TC strategies were measured from both the patient survey and the hospital survey. The final model used the hospital TC implementation survey as the source for these 5 strategies
  4. b Plain language communication was measured from both the hospital and patient survey; the patient survey data were ultimately used in the final model
