: Only study members at the coordinating site, SE, VS, and CVW, will have access to the full dataset once study data has been collected. Results will be disseminated via publications in peer-reviewed journals. Per the data sharing agreement signed with each of the external sites, this anonymized dataset may be transferred to one of the lead investigators at each site for future research purposes if the study team agrees to a research proposal submitted by the lead investigator and all relevant ethics approvals have been obtained. There are no plans to grant the public access to the dataset or statistical code.
