The two groups were compared for socio-demographic data, TtT and TPoT scores.
Patient group scored higher than the control group in terms of TPoT in the threat perception task, but TtT scores were comparable among the two groups (Table 2).
TPoT scores acquired from all sequences were compared between groups.
To recap, TPOT is part of the Productive Series developed by the United Kingdom National Health Service Institute for Improvement and Innovation in response to a call to find savings that could be reinvested in healthcare.
Subsequent initiatives arising from implementing the individual TPOT modules attempted to respond to these issues.
