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. Participants are able to evaluate their performance comparing current practice with measures and best practices to their post-intervention results to assess whether improvement goals have been achieved and that changes have occurred in their practice.
