  1. Note. Participants were identified as clinical team members who participated in PREVENT program during the active implementation period as noted by the site clinical champion and completed a 6-and/or 12-month interview. Among the 41 unique participants, 3 were missing “years worked at the VA.” Overall Program Satisfaction was assessed with a single item, “Overall, how satisfied are you with the PREVENT program?” Response set ranged from 1 to 7 where 7 denotes “extremely satisfied”
  2. Years at VA refers to the number of years participants have practiced at their VA site. The mean, standard deviation, and range are provided for each site in addition to the total mean, standard deviation, and range for all participants. The N value is also provided for “Years at VA.” This value includes all participants who provided an answer for “years at VA” in their interview. Participants who did not provide an answer were counted as missing. Total number of missing “Years at VA for 6 months” = 3 and total number missing “Years at VA for 12 months” = 4
  3. Satisfaction Score refers to the score provided by participants during the 12-month interview (scale 1–7). The mean, standard deviation, and range are provided for each site in addition to the total mean, standard deviation, and range for all participants. The N value is also provided for “Satisfaction Score.” This value includes all participants who provided a satisfaction score during his/her 12-month interview. Total number who were not asked Satisfaction Score and marked as missing = 4
