  • Comment on: 'Students deserve an apology for bursary mess'

    Katie Tupper's comment 15 November, 2012 11:18 am

    The Student Bursaries authority took two months to pay me my bursary last year! However this year has been okay, as I am continuing my course and haven't had to change anything. I am astounded that they have allowed this to happen again to other students! How have they not learnt from their mistakes from last year?! Ridiculous.

    83 Decibels?! Is this true? This level of noise is the equivalent to a diesel train trundling past..being subjected to this level of noise is hardly conducive to recovery. Once again, common sense does not prevail..

    Practising handing over with fellow students is a good tip which I shall be putting into practice on placement at the end of the month!

    I've used all of these recommended resources and found each one very useful. Although I found having my own copy of the BNF helpful (I asked for an out of date one from pharmacy whilst on placement and they were happy to oblige, rather then having to get rid of them themselves). An excellent anatomy and physiology textbook is also incredibly useful...if you don't know LOOK IT UP!

  • Comment on: How to make a good impression on placement

    My only issue with this advice is the importance of demonstrating cultural sensitivity. Some cultures deem it respectful to not give full eye contact, so this must not be misconstrued negatively or attributed to shyness.
