Planning, Evaluation, Monitoring and Research eLearning Series

Join the Conversation

Tuesday, July 7th to Wednesday, September 30th

Please join us in an online, open forum on telehealth. NCB is providing an opportunity for clinicians to ask each other questions, share observations and adapted telehealth protocols for the SoT population via an online forum and technical exchange. This conversation will be a forum for peer-led informational exchange. NCB staff will assist in facilitating and monitoring the conversation.

Directions: Please watch Eugene Augusterfer’s presentation and interview Telemedicine in Mental Health first. Then feel free to join us in this open forum. All are welcome to join this forum, whether you have an account on or not. For more information on using the forum, please read the directions on the first post. Please keep your comments respectful, relevant, factual, and do not share identifying information about clients per client privacy and HIPAA regulations. This forum will be open from July 6, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

This five-lesson series, developed by CVT's Partners in Trauma Healing (PATH) project in collaboration with the National Capacity Building Project (NCB), explains Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research (PMER), giving participants a shared understanding of the basics of PMER.

Each of the five lessons contains the following components, in this order:

  • Pre-test to measure your current knowledge
  • eLearning to educate and inform
  • Assessment to measure your post-eLearning knowledge (embedded at the end of the eLearning)
  • Additional Resources to allow for further study
Please complete the lesson components in the order listed (Pre-Test, eLearning, Assessment, Additional Resources). Your Pre-Test and Assessment scores will automatically submit to NCB, which allows us to see how much this series helps participants  increase their knowledge about core PMER information. This data allows us to meet our technical assistance objectives so we can continue providing support to you in the important work you do with survivors of torture. User names are kept confidential and are only used to identify Pre-Test and Assessment scores; individual scores are not shared. Your Certificate of Completion will be sent to you via e-mail within seven business days of passing the lesson assessment with a score of 80% or greater. You may complete the PMER Feedback Form after each lesson, or at the end of the course.
