PPH – Post Test

Congratulations!  You have completed the didactic portion of the PPH learning module.  In order to complete the requirements for your enhanced skills program, you will have an opportunity to complete a short, straightforward post test.  This is a “formative” test.  In other words, its purpose is to reassure you that you have acquired some basic knowledge on the topic of PPH.    If you work through this module and send in your answers to the post test—you pass!  There are no “marks” but I will answer you by email to give you feedback on your responses.   Please complete the form below or email me your answers at mburnett@hsc.mb.ca.
