  1. Data in columns reference sample and GNP groups and are unadjusted scores (SD). Numbers vary due to missing values. For the EQ-5D utility score, EQ-5D VAS score, and CarerQoL, higher scores indicate better functioning; for the Self-Rated Burden, lower scores indicate better functioning. GNP group = cohort with geriatric nurse practitioner.
  2. p = a0.015, b 0.016, 0.000.
