We also discussed different “flavors” for different locations/population—Beth and Rae mentioned study instruments such as pain scales, the permissions needed to use them, and mentioning RedCap as a possible source of tools and instruments approved for researchers to use i. Christine mentioned that the first sessions would likely be more universal in nature, but information could be gathered from attendees to customize future sessions. e.
