It’s Not Just The Content, It’s The Process

image_1157_2-virus-sightAs I continue along my road to becoming  a well connected professional I am reminded that the journey I’m on is not just about the information and insights I’m gaining but also about the process.The process I’m using is constantly expanding as I am introduced to another on-line tool or site to help me trip over  fascinating, and sometimes not so fascinating, pieces of information.


Today I was sent a URL via Reddit http://www.reddit.com/ which caught my attention.The tittle alluded to using a virus to deliver gene therapy to the retina. Having a retinal condition and having had gene testing in an attempt to try and diagnose what I have, it piqued my interest. I read the article and Scooped  it for my Scoopit  Retina  topic section http://www.scoop.it/u/lorne-kashin . Aside from coming across this really interesting research I am now aware of the web site http://www.sci-news.com/?s=retina which has a couple of other retina related posts.

During the past few weeks I have had two patients tell me they visited my blog and Scoopit site. The few things I have posted there were read by them and found to be an asset to them in their quest to educate themselves about the eye care they require. So here I am showing my professional learning to my colleagues, stakeholders in eye care, and my current and potential clients.

Have a look at this post and pass it on to our growing community of  Connected Opticians.

There are also discussions at the end of the post and at  http://www.reddit.com/comments/1geccx .
