  • Note: CI = confidence interval, SD = standard deviation.

  • * Ranges and estimated minimally important clinical differences (MCIDs) for subscales (range, MCID): actual knowledge (0 to 38, 2.42); perceived preparation to manage IPV (1 to 7, 0.55); perceived knowledge of important IPV issues (1 to 7, 0.55); practice issues (0 to 58, 3.06); preparation (1 to 7, 0.59); legal requirements (1 to 7, 0.77); workplace issues (1 to 7, 0.45); self-efficacy (1 to 7, 0.22); alcohol/drugs (1 to 7, 0.28); and victim understanding (1 to 7, 0.35).

  • MCIDs were estimated as half the subscales’ standard deviations.20
