All quantitative data will be summarised and presented using appropriate descriptive statistics. Recruitment rate will be calculated by the average of participants recruited per study venue per month. Cohen’s d values will be calculated to estimate the effect sizes of the intervention on the outcome variables. All statistical analyses will be performed using IBM SPSS V.24.0. Raw audio files will be transcribed verbatim and destroyed after completing transcription. The interview transcripts and participants’ home journals will be transcribed verbatim from the audio recordings by an independent research assistant and analysed thematically. Initial codes will be developed by two independent researchers (SHSL and JPCC), and grouped them to form major themes and subthemes that correspond to the study aim and objectives. Discrepancies in the major themes and subthemes will be resolved by discussion between the two researchers. The qualitative data will supplement the quantitative outcome data by identifying convergence and differences between the two data sets.25
