  1. * LFA List of Functional Abilities, N number of insurance physicians, n number of insurance physicians who filled in disabilities for (that scale of) the LFA, sd standard deviation. The difference of the mean sum scores over the four LFA scales between control group (CG) and intervention group (IG) is significant for both case report 3 (p = 0.001) and case report 4 (p = 0.023).
