1. Since this is my first research project, I want to get a general understanding of research including experience with:
  • How a research project is started and takes shape
  • How to draw upon other research to build your own
  • How to write, discuss, and present research
  • How to effectively work as a team on a project
2. I would like to develop more skills in coding, as I have never done any coding related to web development before.
3. I want to understand how a web application is created and functions.
  • This also includes how C# is used within web development
4. I would meet and connect with members of Marquette computer science department to become more involved.

Opioid Research

  • [1]
    • article reviews tools on risk assessment
    • "Opioid use disorder risk assessment tools cannot be used in isolation"
    • Article includes tool assessment for SUD afflicted denying treatment/disorder (is this audience included in application?)
    • Biological, social, and psychological assessment
  • [2]
    • article contains good sources on opioid risk/addiction assessment, but these are all early 2000s to 90s

Are users of the app already committed towards fighting their SUD or is the app a first step? What is the specific audience of the App? What research is considered outdated?
