Smith, Claire F.; Munro, Ross; Davies, D. Ceri; Wilkinson, Tracey; Shaw, Hannah; Claridge, Kim; Llewellyn, Sarah; Mc Ateer, Philomena; Ward, Siobhan; Farsides, Tom – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Body donation is a prosocial act providing a unique learning experience to students, ultimately impacting on patient care and science. With an increasing number of training professionals, there is an increasing need for body donors, yet little is understood about donors' beliefs and preferences. A four-center study aimed to understand donors'…

Smith, Claire F.; Freeman, Samuel K.; Heylings, David; Finn, Gabrielle M.; Davies, D. Ceri – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Anatomical education in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland has long been under scrutiny, especially since the reforms triggered in 1993 by the General Medical Council's "Tomorrow's Doctors." The aim of the current study was to investigate the state of medical student anatomy education in the UK and Ireland in 2019. In all, 39 medical…

Gonzales, Rene A.; Ferns, Gordon; Vorstenbosch, Marc A. T. M.; Smith, Claire F. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Spatial ability (SA) is the cognitive capacity to understand and mentally manipulate concepts of objects, remembering relationships among their parts and those of their surroundings. Spatial ability provides a learning advantage in science and may be useful in anatomy and technical skills in health care. This study aimed to assess the relationship…

Smith, Claire F.; Alderton, Dasha L.; Clifford, Katie M.; Wells, Geoffrey – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The importance of patient-centered decisions is embedded throughout clinical practice. The principle that the patient is at the center of all decisions has helped form the contemporary approach to death and dying. The concept of a "good death" will naturally mean different things to different individuals, but is based on the foundation…

Abdel Meguid, Eiman M.; Smith, Claire F.; Meyer, Amanda J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Students' motivation is a vital determinant of academic performance that is influenced by the learning environment. This study aimed to assess and analyze the motivation subscales between different cohorts (chiropractic, dental, medical) of anatomy students (n = 251) and to investigate if these subscales had an effect on the students' anatomy…

Longhurst, Georga J.; Stone, Danya M.; Dulohery, Kate; Scully, Deirdre; Campbell, Thomas; Smith, Claire F. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic has driven the fastest changes to higher education across the globe, necessitated by social distancing measures preventing face-to-face teaching. This has led to an almost immediate switch to distance learning by higher education institutions. Anatomy faces some unique challenges. Intrinsically, anatomy is a three-dimensional…

Hennessy, Catherine M.; Royer, Danielle F.; Meyer, Amanda J.; Smith, Claire F. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Social Media has changed the way that individuals interact with each other -- it has brought considerable benefits, yet also some challenges. Social media in anatomy has enabled anatomists all over the world to engage, interact and form new collaborations that otherwise would not have been possible. In a relatively small discipline where…

Smith, Claire F.; Finn, Gabrielle M.; Hennessy, Catherine; Luscombe, Ciara; Stewart, Jane; McHanwell, Stephen – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
"What do students studying medicine need to know" is an important question for curriculum planners, anatomy educators and students. The Core Regional Anatomy Syllabus (CRAS), published by the Anatomical Society in 2016, contains 156 learning outcomes (LOs) and has informed "what needs to be known." This project explored how…

Smith, Claire F.; Border, Scott – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Anatomy, has in history, been linked to helpful ways to remember structures, branches of nerves, structures passing through foramina, etc. Scalp is even a mnemonic in itself (Skin, Connective tissue, Aponeurosis, Loose areolar tissue, Pericranium). There has been concern by some educators that using mnemonics or rhymes promotes a surface approach…

Smith, Claire F.; Tollemache, Nicholas; Covill, Derek; Johnston, Malcolm – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Understanding the three-dimensional (3D) nature of the human form is imperative for effective medical practice and the emergence of 3D printing creates numerous opportunities to enhance aspects of medical and healthcare training. A recently deceased, un-embalmed donor was scanned through high-resolution computed tomography. The scan data underwent…

Hennessy, Catherine M.; Kirkpatrick, Emma; Smith, Claire F.; Border, Scott – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2016
Neuroanatomy is a difficult subject in medical education, with students often feeling worried and anxious before they have even started, potentially decreasing their engagement with the subject. At the University of Southampton, we incorporated the use of Twitter as a way of supporting students' learning on a neuroanatomy module to evaluate how it…

Hall, Samuel R.; Stephens, Jonny R.; Seaby, Eleanor G.; Andrade, Matheus Gesteira; Lowry, Andrew F.; Parton, Will J. C.; Smith, Claire F.; Border, Scott – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2016
It is important that clinicians are able to adequately assess their level of knowledge and competence in order to be safe practitioners of medicine. The medical literature contains numerous examples of poor self-assessment accuracy amongst medical students over a range of subjects however this ability in neuroanatomy has yet to be observed. Second…

Finn, Gabrielle M.; Walker, Simon J.; Carter, Madeline; Cox, David R.; Hewitson, Ruth; Smith, Claire F. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
There is increasing recognition in medicine of the importance of noncognitive factors, including personality, for performance, and for good medical practice. The personality domain of conscientiousness is a well-established predictor of performance in workplace and academic settings. This study investigates the relationships between the "Big…

Smith, Claire F.; Hall, Samuel; Border, Scott; Adds, Philip J.; Finn, Gabrielle M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
There is increasing recognition of multiprofessional learning in anatomy and its role in medical and healthcare professions. This study utilized two components to investigate anatomy interprofessional education (AIPE) in the United Kingdom and Ireland. First, a survey involving qualitative and quantitative components asked Heads of Anatomy to…

Moxham, Bernard John; Plaisant, Odile; Smith, Claire F.; Pawlina, Wojciech; McHanwell, Stephen – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2014
There is increasingly a call for clinical relevance in the teaching of the biomedical sciences within all health care programs. This presupposes that there is an understanding of what is "core" material within the curriculum. To date, the anatomical sciences have been poorly served by the development of core syllabuses, although there…
