The study is a feasibility study, that aims to explore the acceptability and feasibility of the intervention and related study procedures before proceeding to a larger, controlled study.

The results showed that both the intervention and the study procedures were overall feasible and acceptable. Recruitment was successful, as well as retention of participants. Some modifications to increase adherence to the intervention and data collection procedures are warranted before continuing to the next stage, which is a randomized pilot study.
