Byram, Jessica N.; Van Nuland, Sonya E.; Harrell, Kelly M.; Mussell, Jason C.; Cornwall, Jon – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Gross anatomy education utilizing body donors and human specimens assists the acquisition of non-traditional, discipline-independent skills (NTDIS) such as teamwork, communication, and leadership. Alterations to anatomy curricula, such as those resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, likely impact NTDIS acquisition, yet how this manifests is…

Wainman, Bruce C.; Cornwall, Jon – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Around the world, the recent introduction of assisted death laws has meant that undertaking medical assistance in dying (MAID) is now an option for some persons wishing to end their life. Some of these people donate their bodies to medical science, and by doing so have created a new route from which donor programs can now receive bodies. Such…

Cornwall, Jon; Poppelwell, Zoe; McManus, Ruth – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Individuals who register as body donors do so for various reasons, with aiding medical science a common motivation. Despite awareness of several key reasons for donation, there are few in-depth explorations of these motivations to contextualize persons' reasons for donating. This study undertakes a mixed-method exploration of motivations for body…

Klima, Stefan; Hepp, Pierre; Löffler, Sabine; Cornwall, Jon; Hammer, Niels – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
Integration of anatomy and clinical teaching is a theoretical ideal, yet there is a worldwide paucity of such amalgamation. These teaching models provide support for medical trainees, an important element in Germany where orthopedic intern numbers have declined and anecdotal evidence suggests disinterest in orthopedics. The aim of the study was to…

Cornwall, Jon – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2014
Scalpels are utilized by many different user groups for such purposes as medical procedures and dissection. Injuries caused by scalpels are a potential risk for scalpel users, and include injuries that may occur while mounting and removing the scalpel blade. Between 10% and 20% of all scalpel injuries in education and healthcare settings are…

Cornwall, Jon; Perry, Gary F.; Louw, Graham; Stringer, Mark D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2012
The altruistic act of body donation provides a precious resource for both teaching and researching human anatomy. However, relatively little is known about individuals who donate their bodies to science (donors), and in particular whether donors in different geographical locations share similar characteristics. A multicenter prospective survey of…

Cornwall, Jon – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2011
Anatomical education has traditionally used cadaveric material to study the human body, with both wet prosections and plastinated (PP) material commonly utilized. However, the frequency of use of these different preparation modes in a tertiary institution has not been previously examined. An audit of PP use in the Department of Anatomy and…

Cornwall, Jon; Stringer, Mark D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2009
The debate surrounding the use of cadavers in teaching anatomy has focused almost exclusively on the pedagogic role of cadaver dissection in medical education. The aim of this study was to explore the wider aspects of a body bequest program for teaching and research into gross anatomy in a University setting. A retrospective audit was undertaken…
