First Year Aims

November 6, 2006

To be written:

  •  A discussion of the ethical theory I intend to use to inform the thesis as a whole (sort-of completed although will  need work)
  • A section on how that theory will relate specifically to journalism
  • A section on science and certainty (Popper etc)
  • Again, a section on how that should inform journalists reporting on scientific controversies

Other stuff: 

Training in reading papers (buy Trisha Greenhalgh, “How To Read A Paper”; CASP workshop or critical reading thing with Norman Staines; find out if Goldacre thing is still going ahead and if so when)

Training in interviewing

Ethical approval

Get information about ethical training for journalists; does it take place? Is there anything about medical stories?

NETWORK – start meeting journalists and medics as soon as possible (immunology contacts – speak to James)

SORT OUT FUNDING FOR THE SECOND AND THIRD YEARS to avoid starvation
