  1. α: group and case act as fixed variables
  2. Model A: Results from an additive multivariable logistic regression model with Generalized Estimating Equations to handle the correlation between the multiple results per GP (2 cases). The result is based on 129 events [= total number of positive prescriptions of appropriate therapy in the intervention (n = 64) and control (n = 65) group] from 354 observations. This model gives the Odds ratio (95% CI) and p-value with no correction for gender and type of practice
  3. Model B: Same statistical model as for Model A. This model gives the Odds ratio (95%CI) and p-value with additional correction for gender and type of practice
