Table 4 Logistic regression analyses to investigate whether changes in secondary outcome measures are associated with RTWa

From: Predictors of return to work among patients in treatment for common mental disorders: a pre-post study

  Univariable associations Multivariable associations
  OR 95% CI p OR 95% CI p
Changes on secondary outcome measures   Lower Higher    Lower Higher  
 Improved CORE-OM total 1.06 0.99 1.14 0.099c     
 Improved work ability 1.16 1.03 1.32 0.019c     
 Improved generalized self-efficacy 0.99 0.47 2.09 0.981     
 Improved expectancy of future work ability (yes)b 5.90 1.81 19.24 0.003c 5.90 1.81 19.24 0.003
  1. The dependent variable was RTW; an odds ratio (OR) for RTW of >1 indicates a higher probability of successful RTW
  2. aN varies between 121 and 164 due to missing cases
  3. bOn this variable, being a case indicates either a change from negative to positive expectancy of future workability, or a maintained positive expectancy of future workability
  4. cThese variables were included in a backwards stepwise multivariable logistic regression with p < 0.05 as cut-off for including independent variables in the final model. This resulted in a final model in which only improved expectancy of future work ability was statistically significant associated with RTW
