Postive and Useful Resource Thank you
This is an incredibly timely report that provides many insights just when we are writing up a big project - Thank you. the report will help us to write up the report more explicitly and tease out aspects that may have previously been less explicit. I do wish we had the benefit of the standards before we started - well at least we are more aware of the limitations in our study and our learning for next time!
