Ovals indicate intervention, rectangles with rounded corners indicate intermediate outcomes, and rectangles with squared corners indicate short- or long-term outcomes. Solid lines represent links that were examined in the review. Dashed lines represent linkages that were not examined, for which other published literature was used to demonstrate relationships.

A summary of effect measure (i.e., difference between the intervention and comparison groups) was calculated for outcomes of interest. Absolute and relative differences were presented for outcomes with consistent measurement scales and relative differences for outcomes with consistent measurement scales. Pooled estimates of effect were calculated if there was sufficient number of studies with comparable outcomes and if exploratory data analysis revealed potentially diverse results in the body of literature, or if confidence intervals frequently overlapped zero. The Community Guide rules evidence characterized effectiveness as strong, sufficient, or insufficient on the basis of the number of available studies, the suitability of study designs for evaluating effectiveness, the quality of execution, the consistency of the results and the effect sizes (2).
