Delirium Qstream Modules
The delirium modules are additional online activities offered by Houston Methodist and are separate from the online CME portals.
These activities will consist of multiple-choice questions sent to you via email. The module will begin with two questions every other day in a single email from Houston Methodist’s Qstream .
- If you answer the item incorrectly, it will be repeated approximately 6 days later.
- If you answer the item correctly, it will be repeated approximately 18 days later.
- If you answer the item correctly two times in a row, the item is retired from the program and is no longer repeated.

Interactive Spaced Education [ISE] is a novel approach to online education in which small amounts of educational material are delivered and repeated over spaced intervals via interactive emails. Several recent randomized trials have demonstrated that this ISE methodology improves learning of medical knowledge and is extremely well accepted by learners.
