Each NeuroPI module is prepared by distinguished faculty who are acknowledged leaders in their respective fields. Each module is composed of a set of multiple-choice items with preferred responses, instructions on how to collect cases to assess one’s practice, and educational resources related to the measure(s) that can be used for design and implementation of an improvement plan.
