Giuriato, Rosemary; Štrkalj, Goran; Prvan, Tania; Hulme, Anneliese; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Anatomy is a key knowledge area in chiropractic and is formally offered in the undergraduate component of chiropractic education. There is the potential for loss of anatomy knowledge before the opportunity to apply it in a clinical setting. This study aimed to determine whether chiropractic clinicians retain a level of anatomy knowledge comparable…

Birbara, Nicolette S.; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Technological advancements have made it possible to create realistic virtual representations of the real world, although it is unclear in medical education whether high physical fidelity is required in virtual learning resources (VLRs). This study, therefore, aimed to compare the effectiveness of high-fidelity (HF) and low-fidelity (LF) VLRs for…

Maloney, Stephen; Pather, Nalini; Foo, Jonathan; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Studies of "cost and value" in anatomical sciences education examine not only what works, but at what cost, thus evaluating the inputs and outputs of education. This research provides insights into how to use available resources (e.g., academic time, budgets, infrastructure) as a mechanism to obtaining the maximum outcomes available. The…

Štrkalj, Goran; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Developments in biology and genetics in recent decades have caused significant shifts in the understanding and conceptualization of human biological variation. Humans vary biologically in different ways, including individually, due to age, ancestry, and sex. An understanding of the complexities of all levels of biological variation is necessary…

Pather, Nalini; Blyth, Phil; Chapman, Jamie A.; Dayal, Manisha R.; Flack, Natasha A.M.S.; Fogg, Quentin A.; Green, Rodney A.; Hulme, Anneliese K.; Johnson, Ian P.; Meyer, Amanda J.; Morley, John W.; Shortland, Peter J.; Štrkalj, Goran; Štrkalj, Mirjana; Valter, Krisztina; Webb, Alexandra L.; Woodley, Stephanie J.; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Australian and New Zealand universities commenced a new academic year in February/March 2020 largely with "business as usual." The subsequent Covid-19 pandemic imposed unexpected disruptions to anatomical educational practice. Rapid change occurred due to government-imposed physical distancing regulations from March 2020 that…

Hutchinson, Erin F.; Kramer, Beverley; Billings, Brendon K.; Brits, Desiré M.; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Historically, legislature has been utilized to facilitate appropriate use of cadavers in the anatomical sciences. However, cadaver acquisition and use have also been guided by ethically appropriate and morally acceptable principles. Various global and regional frameworks of "ethical practice" guide body donation, including the use of…

Birbara, Nicolette S.; Sammut, Claude; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Technologies such as virtual reality are used in higher education to develop virtual learning resources (VLRs). These VLRs can be delivered in multiple modalities, from truly immersive involving wearable devices to less immersive modalities such as desktop. However, research investigating perceptions of VLRs in anatomy has mainly focused on a…

Giuriato, Rosemary; Štrkalj, Goran; Meyer, Amanda J.; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Human anatomy knowledge is a core requirement for all health care clinicians. There is a paucity of information relating to anatomy content and delivery in Australian chiropractic programs. The aim of this study was to describe anatomy teaching in Australian chiropractic programs, utilizing a survey which was distributed to all four programs,…

Kramer, Beverley; Pather, Nalini; Ihunwo, Amadi O. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2008
Anatomy departments across Africa were surveyed regarding the type of curriculum and method of delivery of their medical courses. While the response rate was low, African anatomy departments appear to be in line with the rest of the world in that many have introduced problem based learning, have hours that are within the range of western medical…
