  2. aMean post-intervention score adjusted for baseline score. Scored on 5-point Likert scale, higher scores represent more positive attitudes
  3. bone student provided insufficient valid responses to allow a baseline mean to be calculated for the ATHCTS
  4. ctwo students provided insufficient valid responses to allow a post-intervention mean to be calculated for the TSS
