The first segment, What is PCCAMP?, is a video presentation on the concept of PCCAMP and provides a demonstration of the PCCAMP website. The remaining three segments include a case scenario and a series of questions that we ask you to initially consider before moving into the video presentation. The website will be demonstrated in each segment.
