This week, Christiane Grünloh (Ph.D. student from KTH and one of the researchers within the DOME consortium) is visiting Uppsala University to work mostly with the oncology interview study but also the national patient survey. Today, Gunilla Myreteg and Maria Hägglund, also from DOME, joined us. In the picture above we are looking at and discussing the current interview template (from left to right: me, Christiane, Gunilla and Maria). It was very nice to work together in this small group – normally we are spread out and communicate only via Skype.
Christiane, Maria and I started out by going through the interview questions once again, since we have not yet conducted any of the interviews with physicians at the oncology department. We did some updates and piloted the interview with Gunilla when she arrived. We are not sure, but hopefully we can do the first interview(s) tomorrow.
During the last hour we also discussed what was needed to be able to finalize an overview article about the national patient survey. It should not take long before we have a manuscript ready!
We ended the day with a nice dinner at an Italian restaurant in Uppsala, where more persons, mostly from the HTO group at Uppsala University, also joined. Even though we did not spend the entire day writing on the overview article for the national patient survey as we planned from the beginning, we still had a very productive day. Hope we will all meet again soon!
