  1. Perceived Efficacy in Patient-Physician Interaction Questionnaire (PEPPI) is range of 5 to 25; higher scores indicate that the participant has higher self-efficacy in patient-physician interactions
  2. aUnivariate variables with P values < 0.05 were entered into the multiple linear regression
  3. bNominal variables were entered into analysis using dummy coding
  4. cP values are bold where they are less than the significance level of 0.05
