Note. Bold indicates statistically significant results. Empowerment was the dependent variable where “never/rarely/sometimes=0, usually/always=1”. NS=not significant. IPC communication scales: Elicited Concerns and Shared Decision-making were not included in these models due to high amounts of missing.
