Video Content

This self-study material was recorded live, and changes have been made to make the material more suitable for the at-home audience, including reformatting the slides. The audience responses were captured live and are to be used for benchmarking purposes only. In some cases, the user may see all 0%s where the audience response system (ARS) did not capture any data, or cases where, due to rounding, the response percentages do not add up to 100%. In all cases, we have exactly duplicated the responses that were recorded by the ARS.
