Week 17 was busy with three seminars and extra reading. I need to finish writing another 2,000-word summary.
One of my supervisors allowed me to sit in on her module at medical school, which discussed the topic of End-of-Life Care. I observed the medical students’ consultation work with older patients in particularly challenging situations. It made me aware of not only the need for health professionals to prepare for such challenging issues but also how the professionals’ responses help to improve the patients’ feelings.
My goals for week 18
- write a summary of reading on Pragmatics
- enjoy teaching
- bake a birthday cake and celebrate Luca’s birthday!
