Research Reflection Articles

Research Reflection is a new article type, published in Pharmacy GRIT.

Research Reflection articles are the place for you to recount your personal research experiences with the entire SHPA community. Rather than presenting data and findings, these articles provide an opportunity to reflect on your experiences with the process of conducting research, to share your wins, and consider the challenges.


Navigating new horizons: reflecting on my journey through through student supervision and charting a course for error remediation

Irina Rigoli                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

This reflection provides an account of Irina’s first experience as a lead supervisor of a team including five student researchers. The mixed-method project aimed to explore mental health education among Australian hospital pharmacists, identify areas of improvement and included development and data analysis managed by the five talented student researchers. Irina’s reflection documents some of the key challenges she encountered as lead supervisor and includes a range of improvements for future projects.
