  1. aReliability: P > 0.05 (Wilcoxon test), meaning that no statistical difference was found between the two measures of intention
  2. bInternal consistency: 0.7 (Spearman coefficient, Rho, P < 0.0001)
  3. cInternal consistency: 0.9 (Spearman coefficient, Rho, P < 0.0001)
  4. dRange from 0 to 12, with 0 indicating low health literacy, and 12 high. Scoring for this scale has been reversed from its original position [39] so that health literacy ranges for all scales are easier to compare
