  1. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01. Pre- and post-activity surveys were analysed using the Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed rank test
  2. #p < 0.05. Repeated-measures ANOVA using pre- and post-intervention scores as the within-subject factor and intervention (yes or no) as the between-subject factor was conducted to investigate the differences between the outcomes of the profession-role exchange intervention group and the control group
