: The Regional Committee for Medical and Health Research Ethics approved this study (2018/2477). Approval was also obtained from the Data Protection Officer at OUH (P360 nr.19/01751). Independent nurses made the initial contact with the potential participants, after which the researcher provided information about the study and invited those who were eligible to participate. Recruitment was approached in this manner in the interest of ensuring that eligible patients would not be influenced to participate. All participants provided voluntary and written informed consent. Patients with severe head injuries and impaired cognitive function, as well as those who were for any other reason considered unable to consent, were excluded. Participants were offered additional consultations with health professionals and referrals to treatment providers, if desired. In addition to the formal requirements, an emphasis was placed on ensuring anonymity throughout the publication process. Pseudonyms have been used for all participants.
