Each NeuroPI module is prepared by distinguished faculty who are acknowledge 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 resources for creating and implementing an effective improvement plan. Participants are able to compare their performance pre- and post-intervention to assess what changes have occurred in their practice.
