The assignment criteria for Portfolio 3 does not specify a referencing style. Previous assignments for this course have required either Harvard or APA. I have chosen Harvard for this assignment as it is the referencing style I am most familiar with.

Fun Fact: I originally chose Assignment Option 2 and I was all set to begin creating a video about the increasing severity of the Australian bushfire season, when I came across an article about an innovative new wound dressing dubbed ‘Rapid Repair’ (Nelson 2020), the potential uses of which I found fascinating. Thus, despite it being the very last minute, I decided to switch to Option 1, with the specific topic of surgery, opting to present my assignment as a website instead of a video. Due to the low wordcount I have concentrated on the development of surgery in Western countries.
“Dura est manus cirurgi, sed sanans.”(The hand of the surgeon is hard, but healing.)
