BCM212 RESEARCH PROJECT: Where I’m At

Hey everyone!

I just thought I’d fill you in on where I’m at with my research project for BCM212. If you’ve been following my blog you will know the topic I have decided to research is: Should voluntary euthanasia be legalised in Australia?

At this point, I have posted a proposal for my research project, discussed the motivation behind this topic, and provided some background information about voluntary euthanasia which you can read here.

I have also constructed a gantt chart which outlines how I plan on completing this research project throughout the course of the semester as well as a risk matrix which identifies the probability and severity of risks that may arise which can see below.

Project Planning: Gantt Chart
Following the steps outlined by O’Donnell (2011), the following gantt chart outlines how I plan on completing this research project throughout the course of the semester.
Risk Planning: Risk Matrix
Using the steps outlined by Lozier (2014), the following risk matrix identifies the probability and severity of risks that may arise whilst conducting this research project.

Finally, I have a created a Survey Monkey online survey that I would appreciate everyone completing. I know my research topic is confronting, but I would really appreciate your time and assistance with this project. As I have previously mentioned in my project proposal, personal experience and curiosity have driven me to pursue this topic as I am eager to understand the arguments for and against voluntary euthanasia in Australia. This survey is optional and all your answers will remain anonymous. You can access the survey here.

Thank you!
