The start of the week was quite exciting with a research project at the ophthalmology unit, which my colleague is supervising. The study investigates the outcomes of different treatment methods for the patients. We went in together and organised the patients’ treatment prior to their visit. The treatment plan is adaptive and changes on the basis of their diagnosis and their progress within the trial. It had been an interesting morning and I got to see an eye treatment “live” gaining more clinical research practice and experience in dealing with patients.
I got to speak to a clinical psychologist assistant who gave me some advice for future career and degree options. I also went to a meeting with the principle project investigator who just came back from annual leave and discussed the medical research context of the project with me.
I have spent a lot of time researching background literature and have started to systematically conduct a literature review.
