Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the purpose of this e-learning course?

This e-learning course will introduce you to what health services research is, and to its key issues. The history of health services research and to the people who have made it great as well as key players in producing and making health services research accessible to researchers, librarians and to the public.

Can I print out the "Certificate of Success" when I'm done with a module? Can I save the file to send it as an attachment to someone else?

Yes to both answers. You can click on File-->Print to print the certificate.

Use File-->Save As-->filename.html to save the file as an HTML document to a favorite folder. Change the word 'filename' in the filename.html file to a name you will remember such as your name and module; e.g., CS_mod02.html. Then you can either print the file or save it to a named folder for future reference or attach it to an email.

Is any personal information kept about me? I notice you ask for my name for the "Certificate of Success."

No. Even when we ask for your name for the "Certificate of Success" we do not retain your name. When the window closes, your personal information disappears.

Is the content accessible to those with disabilities?

We have made every effort to ensure that this e-learning course is accessible to everyone. If you use special adaptive equipment to access the Web and encounter problems when reviewing this e-learning course, please let us know. Contact: bkareem@mail.nlm.nih.gov.

Are the questions in the Knowledge Check section difficult?

We've tried to make the questions relevant to the content. If you've read each page carefully you should have no trouble with the Knowledge Check questions. There are no trick questions.

Also, you are not required to do the Knowledge Check questions. They are there to help you assess your understanding of the content and to prepare you for the final quiz in each module if you want to test your new knowledge.

What do I do with the research cases?

The Research Cases provide you an opportunity to hone your searching skills and to put to use the content you learned in the various modules. You are not required to do them but they will enhance your knowledge and understanding of the field of health services research.

What is the purpose of the Essential Concepts pages?

These pages, found in most of the modules, summarize the content of the module you are studying. They appear early on in a module but may be used to refresh your memory about what has happened in the modules when you are done. They are similar to "Cliff Notes." You might also look over the Review Questions and Enrichment sections for more information about a module.
