Do I need to complete the entire training package in one sitting?
If I stop in the middle of a module and want to go back to it later, do I have to start the entire module over again?
No. Each module is divided into sections and you can go to any section or topic in a section at any time. When you return to a module on the same computer or device, you will be asked “Would you like to resume where you left off?”
If you are on a different computer of device, you can click on the Menu in the upper right corner of the module to return to the place you left off or access a new section (see below). You can also navigate to any page by page using the PREV or NEXT buttons in the bottom right corner until you find your place. You do not need to wait for the narration to finish to advance any page.
Can I print parts of the training package so I can have it with me when I attend meetings?
You can print the interactive PDF, The PCORI Approach to Patient-Centered Outcomes Research, and the glossary, which is accessible as a PDF in any of the five modules.
Does everyone on my study team need to take the training at the same time?
No. The training is designed to be used individually, though it may be helpful to discuss the materials with other team members using the training package.

Will anyone know when I have completed the training package or a module?
No. Your progress on the training package and within each module will not be tracked or shared with others.
Can I complete the training package more than once?

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion or earn CEU/CME credits?
No, but PCORI is considering offering a certificate and credits in the future.
How can I provide feedback on the training package?
