My second week with HTS was revolved around inputting quantitative and qualitative data into Microsoft Excel. It took me a whole week and a bit to finally finish inputting all the Canterbury teams’ data ready to be analysed. From the results I have become more familiar with the system and how HTS is run, in terms of cases I have recognized common trends and patterns among dementia patients.
I was also given a couple of books to read by my supervisor David, who insisted they were good reads, the first book written by clinical psychologist Oliver James called Contented Dementia and another about famous study involving nuns, which I’m sure I’ll spend a significant amount of my lunch time reading. Well that’s it for this week, stay tuned for more.
