Growth in the online survey market may be increasing response burden and possibly jeopardizing higher response rates. This meta-analysis evaluated survey trends over one decade (2011-2020) to determine: (1) changes in survey publication rates over time, (2) changes in response rates over time, (3) typical response rates within health sciences…

M. Melissa Gross; Jennifer E. Gear; Wendy M. Sepponen – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Surface anatomy is an important skill for students in preparation for patient care, and peer examination is often used to teach musculoskeletal and surface anatomy. An alternative pedagogical approach is to use bodies represented in artworks. Represented bodies display fictive anatomy, providing students with the opportunity to apply their…

Nicolas Van Vlasselaer; Benyameen Keelson; Aldo Scafoglieri; Erik Cattrysse – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
In anatomical research and education, three-dimensional visualization of anatomical structures is crucial for understanding spatial relationships in diagnostics, surgical planning, and teaching. While computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offer valuable insights, they are often expensive and require specialized resources.…

Adam M. Taylor; Quenton Wessels – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Anatomy has been integral to medical and health education for centuries, it has also had a significant role in wider public life, as an educational resource, a link to their health, and also as a darker deterrent. Historically, public engagement in anatomy is hallmarked by public dissections of convicted criminals across the globe. Artists,…

William J. Choi – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Recent controversies over the mismanagement of body donors in US medical schools have raised public concerns over the ethical treatment of bodies in "anatomical gift" programs. Despite widespread moral outrage at such cases, medical students may still make seemingly inconsequential mistakes or jokes that in fact constitute acts of…

Keet, Kerri; Pillay, Pamela; Billings, Brendon K.; Satyapal, Kapil S.; Kramer, Beverley – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Historically, adverse events have reflected poorly on both the practice of dissection and the perception of the discipline of anatomy. The recent public dissection of a body donor is a regression to an unethical historical practice and was strongly denounced by anatomists around the world. The individual whose donated body was sourced from a…

Byram, Jessica N.; Lazarus, Michelle D.; Wilson, Adam B.; Brown, Kirsten M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Altmetrics are non-traditional metrics that can capture downloads, social media shares, and other modern measures of research impact and reach. Despite most of the altmetrics literature focusing on evaluating the relationship between research outputs and academic impact/influence, the perceived and actual value of altmetrics among academicians…

Griffith, MacKenzie; Ferrigno, Christopher; Wilson, Adam B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Anatomy-related departments have access to comparative research productivity data (e.g., Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research), yet no datasets exist for comparing departments' general practices pertinent to education-focused faculty. Practice trends in anatomy-related departments across U.S. medical schools were explored by surveying…

Cheung, Rocky Chun Chung; Chen, Bixia; Ho, Cheuk Chun Joseph; Tipoe, George L.; Yang, Jian – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
This article investigates the level of anatomical knowledge of the Hong Kong public and uses the data to help suggest public engagement activities and health campaigns to raise health literacy in the general population. In the annual public engagement event organized by the University of Hong Kong, 250 attendees took a survey assessing basic…

McNulty, Margaret A.; Wisner, Rebecca L.; Meyer, Amanda J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
The law of Non-Original Malappropriate Eponymous Nomenclature (NOMEN) states that no phenomenon is named after its discoverer. However, eponymous terms are rife in the anatomical and medical literature. In this viewpoint commentary, the authors discuss the history of anatomical eponyms, explain the additional cognitive load imposed by eponyms that…

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…

Jones, David Gareth – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
In responding to COVID-19 anatomists have succeeded in adapting their teaching to online delivery. However, long-term reliance on this mode of teaching raises the prospect that transferring the whole of the learning environment to an impersonal digital world will lead to loss of anatomy's humanistic side. In looking to a future increasingly…

Jones, David Gareth – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The move of much anatomy teaching online in response to the Covid-19 pandemic has been successfully implemented within very short time frames. This has necessitated a high degree of dependence upon the use of digitized cadaveric resources, has entailed immense workload demands on staff, and has disrupted students' studies. These educational…

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…

Husmann, Polly R.; O'Loughlin, Valerie D.; Brokaw, James J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The inaugural Anatomy Education Research Institute (AERI 2017) was held in Bloomington, Indiana in July of 2017. This workshop style conference paired experienced educational researchers (invited speakers) with individuals interested in learning more about the field (accepted applicants). In 2017, AERI was held over a five-day period and entailed…
